These Fire Safety Tips Are A Must For Any Restaurant

Chesapeake Sprinkler Commercial Fire Safety

Fire safety should be a top priority if you own or manage a restaurant. Your restaurant can have various fire hazards that can risk your employees’ and customers’ lives. To avoid such dangerous situations, it is vital to take all necessary precautions and ensure your restaurant is safeguarded from possible fire hazards. Here are some essential fire safety considerations you should remember as a responsible restaurant owner or manager.

Indoor Fire Safety Tips

As a restaurant owner, it is crucial to prioritize fire safety in your establishment. One way to do this is by availing of hood and duct cleaning services. According to NFPA 96 regulations, this service is mandatory to prevent fire hazards caused by greasy duct systems. Another critical aspect of fire safety in your restaurant is having a properly installed and regularly maintained fire suppression system. Your kitchen hood and duct should always be kept clean to ensure the system’s effectiveness in case of a potential fire. Fire doors are also an essential safety feature that provides protection against fire and allows people to exit the building safely in case of a fire outbreak. Local and state regulations require the installation of fire doors in commercial and residential buildings, so make sure that your fire doors are always in compliance with the rules and functioning correctly to ensure maximum safety. 

Outdoor Fire Safety Tips

Here are some outdoor dining safety aspects to consider to ensure your restaurant keeps customers and employees safe. If your restaurant provides outdoor seating for customers, it is vital to take necessary precautions to ensure their safety. For instance, if space heaters are placed outside, ensure the cords are correctly positioned to avoid tripping hazards. It would help if you also considered placing CO2 detectors in the heaters to prevent fire or burn risks.

Another essential safety measure is to ensure easy accessibility and free movement within the outdoor dining area. Customers should be able to move around freely without any obstructions. It is also essential to have fire extinguishers available inside the restaurant and within reach of any outdoor dining fires that may occur. This will help you quickly put out any fires that may arise and prevent them from causing significant damage.
