The significance of a fire safety check


Despite the annually decreasing number of people who die in fire accidents, 306 people died in 2018 as a result of fire.

Austria's fire brigade association also states that around 23 percent of all fire incidents occur in office, commercial and industrial buildings.

A key strategy to keep fire risks in check is careful planning, regular fire safety checklist inspections and regular education through fire safety reviews. Fire safety inspections also help to collect important data for the development of appropriate safety measures for the building fire protection plan.



4 Tips for Fire Protection


An effective fire protection plan is the sum of a multitude of planned processes. Each element contributes to the minimization of fire risks and helps fire safety officers to develop fire safety inspection procedures and strategies for the fire safety plan. Here are 4 useful tips for a fire safety plan:


  1. Preventive measures
    Prevention begins with the training of employees. They should be fully informed about emergency procedures and the operation of fire protection equipment.

  2. Threat assessment
    An examination of the fire risk is also an elementary component of hazard minimization. This can be comprehensively implemented with the help of fire protection checklists.

  3. In case of fire
    A series of inspections of active fire protection equipment (AFP), such as fire alarms, fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems and smoke detectors, ensure safe operation in case of fire. The fire-fighting and fire protection system should be carefully designed.

  4. Emergency evacuation
    Safe evacuation and a planned, well-structured procedure is of major importance in fire protection procedures. The emergency evacuation plan includes important contact details of the safety authorities, the map of all emergency exits and other protocols relevant to the fire. Special attention should also be paid to people with disabilities. They should have appropriate evacuation measures in place and be fully informed about the procedure.
