Fire Safety: 12 Ways to Keep Your Workplace Safe


With wild fires burning out of control in California, it is a reminder that we all have to be vigilant about fire safety. From a workplace perspective, fire safety has come a long way since the tragedy at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City, that killed 146 garment workers -123 women and 23 men, in 1911. Today, there are standards put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to guard against hazards like locked fire exits and inadequate fire extinguishing systems.

Explosions and fires account for 3% of workplace injuries and have the highest casualty rate of all probable workplace accidents.
