What Are Common Causes of Commercial Fires?
Arson, smoking, electrical malfunctions, heating equipment, lighting equipment, and cooking equipment are considered some of the most common causes of commercial fires. By teaching and practicing fire safety procedures in the workplace, you can help prevent these fire safety hazards in a commercial building, protecting its occupants’ safety while preventing significant water and fire damage from ruining your commercial property.
Do I Need to Add a Fire Sprinkler System to My Business?
In most cities, having a commercial fire sprinkler system installed on a commercial property is a legal requirement for business owners. The guidelines, rules, and regulations regarding commercial fire sprinkler systems can vary from city and result in severe consequences if not met, including fines, citations, and, in some instances, your business can be closed.
What Are the Benefits of Having Commercial Fire Safety Systems Installed in Your Business?
Commercial fires can be extremely hazardous and destructive, causing significant damage to a business, its owner, employees, and customers. However, commercial fire safety systems, including fire sprinklers, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and more, are great ways to monitor, detect, and suppress fire hazards, preventing injuries, death, and property damage often linked to commercial fires.
Why Do I Need Commercial Fire Extinguishers in My Building?
Commercial fire extinguishers are a key fire safety product that can help you suppress fire hazards in a commercial building preventing them from spreading. Fire extinguishers also allow you to protect yourself, your property, and other building occupants from being damaged or injured by dangerous and destructive commercial fires. The amount and type of fire extinguishers needed in a commercial building are determined by a building’s pre-defined hazard level, size, codes, and OSHA standards.
