Product Spotlight: Fire Safety Signs

Destructive, devastating, and hard to control – you can use the same words to describe a fire as you would the fire problem in the U.S. Fires remain a pervasive safety issue for homes and businesses across the country. According to the National Fire Protection Association, there were 1.345 million fires reported in 2015, up almost 4 percent from the previous year. This translates to a fire department responding to a fire every 23 seconds. And these blazes often turn deadly – that same year there were 15,700 civilian (non-firefighter) injuries from fires, and 3,280 deaths.

Stonehouse Signs Fire Safety SignsWorkplaces have unique fire dangers, and thus extra precautions must be taken to ensure fire safety at work. OSHA regulations cover both general fire safety, such as emergency evacuations, fire exits, and firefighting equipment training, as well as some specific fire dangers, such as hazardous chemicals, grain handlers, and others. But regardless of the fire dangers present in the workplace, the main safety message OSHA stresses is training workers is key. From their fact sheet on fire safety: “Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and about what to do in a fire emergency. If you want your workers to evacuate, you should train them on how to escape. If you expect your workers to use firefighting equipment, you should give them appropriate equipment and train them to use the equipment safely.”

Fire Safety Signage is a vital part of any fire safety training program. These signs serve as important safety warnings, reminders or instructions to help prevent fires from starting, or to help guide workers in a fire emergency. For example, labeling Hazardous / Flammable Chemicals with appropriate warning signs; using Fire Exit Signs to label evacuation routes; or using Fire Equipment Signs to label firefighting equipment. All workers should be trained on what your workplace fire safety signs mean as part of their overall fire safety training.
