Small business owners have a legal responsibility to protect their employees and customers. Developing and actively following fire safety procedures within your organization can help you comply with local fire safety regulations.
However, business owners often do not fully understand national fire safety laws. Every small business should follow five essential fire safety practices to protect employees, customers, property, and assets from fire hazards.
Have Clearly Signed Fire Exits
In the event of a fire, employees, customers, and users must exit at multiple locations of the building. Regulations require at least two emergency exits in the building, not located close together to be used in the event of a fire.
Regulations also require emergency exits to remain unlocked, with the exception of alarm systems built into the exit doors from Draft. All emergency exits must be marked with illuminated exit signs.
