Beyond the obvious liability and potential human tragedy caused by electrical fires, even a small fire source can have a noticeable negative impact on any property.
Throughout the United States, implementing fire safety inspection programs is ongoing as part of routine property inspections.
The fire safety inspection is a fire risk assessment geared towards identifying and reducing any risks of fire that may be present while ensuring the fire safety standards are maintained.
This routine inspection can make a significant difference between life and death. It ensures the building’s occupants and the surroundings are kept safe.
In the spirit of keeping safe, every property needs to have a fire safety checklist. This checklist should cover:
- Installing smoke detectors and fire detectors suitable for your property size
- Carrying out routine alarm tests and fire drills
- Regular servicing of sprinkler systems
- Have an adequately operating fire extinguisher
- Monitor fire doors
- Have evacuation doors in prominent places
- See to it that the electrical system is in good shape
- Don’t overload outlets
- Store flammable materials appropriately away from hot surfaces and children
- And much more
Following up on the fire safety checklist is vital as it helps keep everything in check during the inspection. You won’t be dealing with so many faults during the inspection.
When inspecting your property, you may think of skipping the safety inspection, but the risk is awesomely huge.
