Workplace Fire Drills Do You Have A Procedure In Place?
Workplace fire drills, ensuring you have a procedure in place.
As its a new year, it’s certainly time to start thinking about procedures for fire drills especially if you don’t have them in place.
Fire Drills Should Be A High Priority
One of the highest priorities for all business owners is ensuring everyone visitors and employees are kept safe in the event of a fire emergency.
Creating Plans For Fire Drills
When creating a plan for fire drills, firstly the escape routes throughout the building need to be established. You should have a team responsible for overseeing them, the team should be trained in what to do and also how to measure the performance of others.
Communication is certainly the key. Once your plan is created you need to ensure that all employees are aware of the procedures and policies. Having regular fire drills is important and every employee should be aware of the date and time this will take place.
Consideration should also be taken into how long the evacuations take, and how long the report takes to be completed. Rehearsing fire drills in the workplace is as important as planning them. Results can be compared and improved upon.
It’s also a good idea to have observers which are not on the team carrying out the drill. This way they can offer impartial advice, and also ensure that anyone who needs assistant or mobility issues is taken care of. The observers should also watch out for people who do not use the designated exits or don’t follow the correct procedures.
