Make investments in training that help your employees and members to have a positive impact on reducing the likelihood of fire situations. What actions should employee/members take to reduce the likelihood of a fire occurring in your facility?
- Identify the hazards and high risk locations in your facility.
- Identify the high risk times and identify those that are at high risk of becoming victims.
- Select and focus on a specific audience to impact the areas and people you learned about in the identification phase. Are there community resources you can use to aid you in your action plan? This approach will help you figure out the costs and the benefits of your program.
- Design your message content. The format and the delivery system of your message content will be different for differing audiences.
- Maybe you want to offer fire prevention training or get the assistance of fire public educators.
- Evaluate your fire prevention program. Does the program have the desired impact? Are employees propping open fire doors. Do people leave materials in the aisles that block egress? Is all fire safety equipment in working order?
The investments you make will give you the returns you are seeking.
