Fires claim thousands of businesses every year.

After a devastation like this, few business owners ever recover their losses. On top of that, there's the danger the fires put their employees in.

So how do you save your company from this disastrous fate?

To start with, you should find the most common causes of fires and eradicate them from your workplace.

And with this one tip you can do this and prevent 95% of fires in your workplace...

 

You can prevent nearly any workplace fire by using this one tip

 
Tip: Regularly check your electronics 
 
The most common cause of business fires is old, damaged electrical systems. Damaged wires lose their plastic coating over time. This means the live wires inside could touch, cause a spark and start a workplace fire. 
 
Because your electrical system is something you just plug your computer and printer into then forget about, it's easy not to notice this damage. 
 
This is why electrical fires are so common. 
 
But since it's so easy to maintain your electrical system this should never happen.
 
Here's how to do it…

Here's what to do to check and maintain your electrical system

 
You don't even need to do anything yourself to maintain your electrical system. You just need to call a trained electrician. He'll assess the condition of your electrical system and tell you what maintenance you need to do. 
 
He can then take steps to safely repair it.
 
Also remember to avoid overloading plug points, forcing plugs in or letting your electrical appliances overheat.
 
This will help you ensure your electrical system never becomes the reason your workplace burns down.
