Is Fire Safety Your New Year’s Resolution?
Fire safety should be a top concern for your commercial business regardless of the time of year. However, the new year is a great time to recommit to fire safety and explore new ways to strengthen your protection.
Liberty Fire Solutions has compiled a list of the biggest benefits business owners stand to gain by strengthening their fire safety protocol in the new year.
Business owners must proactively protect their employees and customers. Regularly inspecting fire sprinklers, fire extinguishers, and emergency and exit lighting is a great way to protect your property and personnel.
A minor fire can quickly escalate into a catastrophic event without the proper equipment or procedures in place. Enhancing the fire safety features in your commercial building will protect your property while slowing the spread of flames.
Pennsylvania business owners are required to submit several fire safety inspections for their equipment. Depending on the type of equipment and building, these compliance inspections may occur monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.
Keeping your fire safety procedures updated can help keep your facility in compliance with local, state, and federal guidelines.
Insurance providers often require proof of periodic fire safety inspections to keep coverage active. The insurance company may reject your claim if you can’t provide proof of inspection. Strengthening your fire safety can help you save time, money, and aggravation following a fire event.
Not only are inspection reports necessary for taking advantage of insurance coverage, but they can also protect you from criminal liability.
For example, if a customer or tenant is harmed in a fire event on your property, you could be held liable if you don’t have the proper inspection reports. Ensure your building complies with current fire safety codes to avoid becoming criminally liable.
Investing in quality fire safety equipment now can help prevent catastrophic fire events in the future. Scheduling routine fire safety inspections can also help you identify equipment problems early to avoid malfunction during an emergency.
