Of course you want to make sure that your business is as safe as possible, both for you, your colleagues and your clients. You need to be certain that should a fire happen on site, there are systems in place that enable it to be dealt with swiftly, and that your staff and customers will be able to evacuate the building safely.
Having a smoke alarm fitted isn’t always enough, especially if your premises are large. Here are a few additional ways you could protect your business against a fire risk.
- Fire extinguishers
Whether you have expensive equipment or large amounts of stock, having a fire extinguisher on site allows you to act quickly and put the fire out immediately, keeping damage to a minimum. Every commercial business is obligated to have fire extinguishers, so ask experienced fire extinguisher engineers in Preston to install yours.
- Emergency lighting
Emergency lighting is essential for any business. If there is a power cut in the event of a fire or any other type of emergency, you need to make sure that the way out is lit up and clear so that employees and clients can find their way out of the building quickly and safely. Experts can install and maintain emergency lighting, ensuring it will remain effective when you need it most.
- Gas extinguishers
When this type of extinguisher detects a fire, it dispenses inert gas from a bottle or cylinder, thereby cutting the oxygen level in the room down to stop the fire spreading. You may want to install gas extinguishers where your central server equipment is kept.
