  • Don't pinch extension cords under furniture.
  • Report frayed electrical cords.
  • Unplug coffeemakers and other small appliances before everyone leaves for home.
  • Make sure your exit ways are not blocked by trash, boxes or other potential impediments.
  • Report blocked exit ways as well as problems with sprinklers, alarms and emergency lighting.
  • Carefully store flammable liquids if they are used in your workplace.

 Fire Extinguishers

  • Make sure everyone is out or leaving the building and the Fire Department is on the way before you consider using an extinguisher.
  • Fire extinguishers are only good for fighting small fires.
  • Ensure that you are using the right type of extinguisher for the fire you are trying to put out.
