This week, the people of the world celebrated the 45th Earth Day. While every day should be treated like Earth Day, this particular date is used to remind the world how important it is to care for our planet.
One of the worst scenarios that could occur during the work day is a workplace fire. While some of these workplace fires are unavoidable and beyond the control of building occupants, some fires can be prevented. In fact, many of the two hundred workplace fires that take place every day can be avoided if proper precautions were taken. Here are some tips on preventing workplace fires:
A commercial fire can cause devastating damages to a business, sometimes to the point where the business is completely lost. While there is no way to completely prevent a commercial fire from occurring within your building, there are steps that an owner can take to prevent serious damage. One way this can be accomplished is through smoke alarms. Smoke alarms can alert commercial building occupants of a fire to help ensure the safety of occupants and to prevent serious damage from occurring.
Carbon monoxide has come to be known as a silent killer in residential homes. Carbon monoxide poisoning provides no warning, and causes deaths in homes every year. It is more common in residential areas because of the use of generators and cars being kept in garages. However, the threat of carbon monoxide poisoning is still real in a commercial setting. To protect your employees from carbon monoxide, it is important to take the proper precautions.
When you begin to search for clean agents specifically for fire protection, it’s rare that anyone fully understands how different two clean agents can be. Do you know the environmental ramifications that come from using certain clean agents like hydrofluorocarbons? These clean agents are actually becoming the target for phase-downs and restrictions to help decrease the amount of greenhouse gases being released into our atmosphere.
