Fire safety planning in Perth

When drawing up the plans for new offices and industrial buildings, the importance of planning for fires cannot be overstated for, as we know, fires can have a devastating financial and emotional impact on businesses of all sizes. Fire can result in lost productivity, major infrastructure damage, staff unemployment and even bankruptcy.

Careful design and planning will ensure compliance with fire regulations and can help prevent serious incidents. Top priorities should include installing efficient fire alarm and fire suppression systems, fire cabinets and hose reels, as well as introducing lay-out maps for fire extinguishers and fire evacuation plans. Signage is particularly important to educate employees on the locations of emergency exits, fire extinguishers and other safety equipment.

Other factors to consider are site security which helps to prevent fire derived from arson activities and potential bush fire risk if your business is located near bush. Make sure the area surrounding your property is clear to reduce the bushfire risk and ensure a bushfire response plan is implemented.

There are a myriad of ways in which fires can start, including by accident and neglect, such as discarded cigarettes and unsafe work practices. Many fires can be prevented by ensuring careful planning from the start with fire safety in mind.
