What Gold Coast Business Owners Need to Know About Fire Safety
Fire Safety – What You Need To Know As a Gold Coast Business Owner
When it comes to Fire Safety, the onus is on the business owner to ensure that the workplace and / or shop has the necessary Fire Protection Equipment in place, as well as the appropriate fire safety procedures. All too often we come across business premises that simply do not comply with the Local Regulations and open themselves up to fines and even possible closure of the business. More concerning is the fact that staff and customers are at risk should an emergency situation arise. The bottom line is this: You cannot afford to neglect Fire Safety in Your Gold Coast Business.
The best time to fight fire is before one occurs. Well-thought out, systematic and proactive risk assessment procedures, Fire Safety Standards, and education eliminate many unwanted fires before they start. Then, add the provision of essential Fire Protection equipment, specific workplace notification and Fire Evacuation protocols in conjunction with clear escape routes, and you’ve managed to minimize the loss of your most precious asset, human life, should a fire occur that is beyond your control. For make no mistake, even when one’s emergency preparations and training are of the highest quality, accidents, mishaps and unfathomable acts of God still take place. This is why, in addition to education in prevention, response training, as well, is key.
Business owner leadership and initiative is critical to preventing fires, minimizing the impact of those that occur, and to preserving lives, property, and livelihoods. Every workplace is different, and needs to have its unique risks assessed, preferably by a professional working with Fire Services in the Gold Coast, who readily spots potential hazards that often are not obvious to the untrained eye. A strong, action-based plan for Fire Protection would include the following key objectives:
- Identification and control of existing hazards
- Training for employees so that they know precisely what to do in the event of an emergency
- Installation of sufficient number of fire alarms to provide easy access anywhere fire may occur
- Installation of, employee instruction in using, and professional maintenance of adequate number of appropriate Class (A, B, C, D, F, ABC) fire extinguishers
- Clearly marked exits that unlock from the inside
- Clear access to exits maintained
- Provision of a posted escape route for all employees
- Regular fire drills
There is no doubt that when employers take the initiative to comply with Australian Standards for fire, countless numbers of lives and assets are preserved. Creating a safe work environment also communicates value to workers and customers alike, maintaining a professional environment in your Workplace or Public Area. We here at FCF Fire & Electrical Gold Coast can offer you the very best Service and Value for money when implementing all your Fire Protection requirements.
