Train Your Staff on Fire Safety in Your Gresham Business
Do you know what to do in the event of a fire in your business?
Why should you train your employees for fire safety? The hazards from fire can pose a significant threat to your business. Every year many people are injured by fires that occur in the workplace - and the financial costs of a fire can be equally devastating. In the event of a fire, the highest priority is always to get the occupants of the building out of harm’s way. Trained staff will provide the best chance for this to happen in a methodical and efficient manner.
When a fire breaks out and panic settles in, you don’t want to rely on your staff thinking or problem solving on the go. Instead, set up a plan that’s unique to your establishment, and have your staff practice it until it’s embedded into their minds and they can perform it on autopilot. Look into your local government agencies or fire departments to see if there are training's offered for your or your employees.
