About this micro-class

Fire safety is a shared responsibility. By staying informed and vigilant, we contribute to a safer workplace for everyone.

Fire Safety Rules

1. Emergency Exits

Familiarize yourself with the location of emergency exits. They should be clearly marked and easily accessible.

In the event of a fire alarm, always use the nearest exit and proceed to the designated assembly point.

2. Fire Prevention

Keep work areas clean and organized. Clutter can contribute to the rapid spread of fire.

Avoid overloading electrical outlets and ensure all electrical equipment is in good working condition.

Report any faulty wiring or equipment to the facilities management team promptly.

3. Fire Extinguishers

Know the location of fire extinguishers in your work area and understand how to use them.

Only attempt to use a fire extinguisher if you have been trained to do so and the fire is small. If the fire is large or spreading, evacuate immediately and call emergency services.

4. Evacuation Drills

Participate actively in scheduled fire drills. These drills are essential for practicing a quick and orderly evacuation.

Familiarize yourself with the evacuation routes and assembly points.

5. Communication

Be aware of your company’s communication protocols during emergencies. This may include using intercom systems or designated personnel to relay important information.

If you discover a fire or smoke, immediately activate the nearest fire alarm and alert others in the vicinity.

6. Emergency Contacts

Save emergency contact numbers, including the local fire department, in your phone.

If you witness a fire or suspect a fire hazard, report it immediately to your supervisor or the designated safety officer.

7. Personal Responsibility

Take personal responsibility for fire safety.

Avoid engaging in activities that could pose a fire risk, such as using unauthorized electrical appliances or smoking in prohibited areas.
