Safety should be the first priority when running any type of business. You want your employees and customers to feel comfortable when they enter your place of business. When you run a business, there are certain fire safety guidelines that must be followed to keep it up and running. Here is the importance of regular fire inspections.
Save Lives & Property
Being prepared for a fire in advance can help to save a lot of lives if one occurs. Regular fire inspections don’t only ensure that your equipment is in working order, but inspectors will also point out any possible fire hazards as well. Without inspections, businesses are likely to ignore or forget to check their building for fire hazards or their equipment.
Many states require that your building get a fire inspection at least once a year. This helps to ensure your safety but also keeps your business running. If you do not get regular fire inspections, you could be shut down. If you’ve waited years to have a fire inspection done and you have way too many violations, you could also be shut down.
Performing regular fire inspections allows the fire inspectors to collect useful data that can help them in the future. They can figure out patterns regarding faulty equipment or common areas where fire hazards exist. It also helps them to decide where the best places are to install new fire equipment. Driving to your building can also allow them to see which fire hydrants and water sources are closest to your building in case of emergencies.
As mentioned before, you want your customers to feel comfortable when they enter your place of business. Getting regular fire inspections lets your customers and employees know that you care about their safety and well being. It also give you a chance to interact with the local fire department and get to know them a little better.
