What To Do If You Are Involved In A Fire Hazard.



Fire kills, so try not to be a victim- it can
start without a source of ignition. It is very easy to identify the sources of
ignition in your workplace, for instance electrical equipment, cigarettes,
matches / lighters, machinery, heating appliances, welding, grinding and so on.

 

 The
best way to take precaution is by..


taking proper care while at work. Every fire
outbreak starts or even sparks at a smaller rate and then progress into a
deeper personal, environmental and financial disaster.

What to do                    
If you are involved in a fire hazard, the
right thing to do is:
·        
Alert the nearest
fire call point / fire service so that they could come for emergency rescue
mission
·        
Fight the fire if
you can withstand the heat; you can do this through the use of fire extinguisher
in your car or office or kitchen
·        
Do not fight the
fire if it is too large for you- so that you will not end up wounding yourself.
Fire prevention
Employees and
employers can ensure a safe environment for themselves by preventing the spread
of fire. Below are some of the essential tips:
·        
Abstain from smoking
in your office or environment apart from smoking zones
·        
Reports loose
wiring, cables, damaged wall sockets and plugs to the appropriate quarters
·        
Make sure
combustible materials are not located near portable gas heaters or electric
fires
·        
Turn off all
electrical appliances if you are not using them
·        
Make sure your gas
cylinders are stored safely. 
Means of escape
Be diligent if there is a fire outbreak, don’t
give up. Try to escape through the exit doors, staying within the environment
will worsen the situation- it will deteriorate your health. Don’t give up; try
the best you can to save your life, because your life is sacred and precious!
