Workplace fires can happen when you least expect it. And the best way to deal with them is to prevent one all together.

It's simply a matter of putting fire safety measures in place and ensuring your employees know how to avoid fires.

To help you do this effectively we're revealing four fire safety tips that will prevent a fire disaster in your workplace...

 

Prevent a workplace fire disaster by following these four tips

 
Tip 1: Remove flammable materials and gasses from possible ignition sources 
Move anything flammable away from your employees work area if they work with open flames, machines that cause sparks or anything that could start a fire.
 
It's advisable to keep working with anything that could cause a fire in a contained area. This means if it does start a fire you can close it off and it won't burn anything else.

Smoking is a common cause of fires. If you create designated smoking areas away from your building you can avoid this problem.
