Fire is one of the biggest threats to a construction site and can be easily prevented and detected with the right measures in place, so why take risks?
There are a number of reasons fire is such a prominent threat to construction sites, and having specialised systems on site are essential in stopping disaster from striking. Some of the different threats include:
The presence of flammable materials and explosive substances – Construction sites contain a whole host of equipment that’s susceptible to catching fire, which is why it’s important to have strict rules on site for smoking and bonfires, and ensure flammable materials and substances are stored in a safe place out of hours.
Unsafe electrics – Any electrics on site should be installed and maintained by a trained electrician. Equipment can be easily damaged by machinery, heavy duty use and weathering, which is when it can become a fire hazard, so it’s really important to check it regularly.
Trespassing & vandalism – Unfortunately crimes like arson are out of your control, however there are measures you can take to prevent it. These include fencing to surround the site, out of hours security, CCTV and Intruder Detection systems such as Tag Watch and Tag Alarm.
