Office Fire Hazards

One of the most common types of hazard in an office is a fire hazard which can cause personal injury to employees. The main reasons for office fire hazards are combustible materials, poor maintenance of equipment, poor standards of house keeping and poor maintenance of electric circuits. Office fire hazards can cause serious injuries to employees and may even lead to loss of life.

So it is necessary to take certain steps in order to prevent fire accidents in the office premises. Employers should ensure there are health and safety requirements regarding workplace fire safety. This will include making employees aware of escape routes, emergency exits and practicing fire drills on a periodical basis.

There can be many causes of office fire hazards. Whatever the cause you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses if the fire was caused due to the negligence of the employer.

It is important for employers to conduct adequate risk assessments in order to reduce the risk of fires. They should also have control measures in place in the event of a fire.
