Every year many people die or are injured in fire related accidents that could easily be prevented.
Fire and explosion at work account for two per cent of major injuries.The wide variety of flammable substances found in the workplace range from the obvious, for example heating fuel, petrol, paint thinners, welding gases – to the less obvious, such as packaging materials, dusts from wood, flour and sugar. For a fire to start, fuel, air and a source of ignition are needed.
Controlling or elimination of these can prevent fires, but it is essential to have staff who are trained in fighting fires should one occur.
