Fire inspections are necessary to keep your employees and property safe from any potential hazards. They evaluate the safety level of buildings against commercial fires, to ensure all safety standards are being met, and to ensure that all fire codes are up to the necessary standards.
What will be inspected?
You may ask what exactly is “inspected” during a fire inspection? Fire inspectors will assess many different aspects of your building during this process, including:
- Fire alarm systems
- Emergency procedures
- Emergency evacuation plans
- Fire extinguishers
- Fire sprinkler systems
- Design and construction of your building
Requirements for Fire Inspections
There are requirements that your building must meet in order to fully pass a fire inspection, for example:
- Exit pathways must be illuminated
- Fire extinguishers must be tagged and stickered
- Building aisles should be free of any obstructions
- Smoke detectors must be properly functioning and tested
- Trash and debris should not be on the building grounds
- Building address should be able to be seen by pedestrians (and of a good size)
- Building gas meter should be protected
- Keep all electrical outlets, junction boxes, and circuit breaker panels covered with plates
- All emergency lights and exit signs must work properly in normal and emergency power modes
The inspector will thoroughly look at many other things on the interior and exterior of your building. It is very important to stay on top of these things to make sure that your employees and property are both safely protected.
