- Eliminate common causes - Try to eliminate commonly overlooked causes of fires, such as on-site smoking, overloaded circuits and improper electrical installations.
- Control the flames - If a fire does occur on your property, it's crucial to have controls in place to keep the flames from spreading. This includes compartmentation (installing separating walls) and an effective sprinkler system.
- Communicate with contractors - If you have contractors on-site, it's vital to discuss the responsibilities of each party for reducing fire-related risks - especially if hot work is involved.
