Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the top fire hazards in the workplace include: 

  • flammable materials (such as paper and cardboard) scattered in an office space; 
  • combustible liquids; 
  • dust or debris; 
  • overused power sockets; 
  • electrical wiring; and 
  • negligence. 

Not having adequate fire safety equipment and clear fire exit plans is also considered a hazard, as it endangers the lives of people in the workplace.

As a type of emergency response plan, a framework for addressing fire hazards should include the following elements: 

  • List of potential fire hazards present in the workplace
  • Required step-by-step action to take
  • Detailed list of firefighter and EMS leads with their contact details
  • Floor and electrical wiring plans of the organization
  • Maps showing fire exit routes that comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.35, 1910.36, and 1910.37 regulations

Correct storage practices significantly reduce the risk of accidental fires by preventing flammable substances from coming into contact with ignition sources. It is essential to store flammable materials in cool, well-ventilated areas away from heat sources, open flames, and electrical equipment. 

Furthermore, it is crucial to properly label these materials and include cautionary signs to signal its flammable nature. This not only helps identify it more easily, but it can also make employees more aware of the risk and teach them how to practice safety. 

Fire safety is a responsibility shared by everyone, though it involves key roles. Business leaders have the primary responsibility of ensuring a safe working environment through conducting risk assessments and ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations. Employees also play an important role for fire safety, as they are expected to follow protocol, participate in training sessions, and report any potential hazards. 

Conducting a fire risk assessment involves a few critical steps that need to be performed accurately to ensure safety. The key steps include the following:

  1. Identify fire hazards
  2. Determine the people at risk
  3. Evaluate and mitigate the potential risks
  4. Record findings
  5. Develop an emergency plan 
  6. Regularly inspect and update
