Businesses told of importance of fire signs

14th July 2010 | Fire Signs

Businesses should not neglect to focus on fire safety and have been offered some advice into how to ensure that potential problems are limited.

Frances Philips has written on Hub Pages that that a large number of disasters more than likely could have been avoided if the right fire safety strategies were in place.

The writer insists that ensuring that combustible materials are not stored in fire prone areas, unplugging electrical appliances when they are not in use and regularly inspecting fuse boxes are all steps that can be taken to make a building safer.

Meanwhile, fitting a building with a number of fire safety signs could also prove a wise choice, particularly as visitors could get themselves in a bit of a panic.

The writer added: "Not only should these fire safety signs warn of dangerous areas or route and points of exit, but they must also direct people to find emergency equipments and instruct people how to use these equipments in case of fire or emergency."

Kevin Molloy, UK leader of health and safety at Marsh's risk consulting practice, told Post Online earlier this year that fire wardens should be able to carry out "all tasks assigned" in an emergency.

These include knowing which areas to sweep to evacuating customers with mobility problems.
