Importance of Controlling Fire Explosion Risks on Construction Sites

fire 3

I came across an article on SafetyCulture.com.au recently which discussed the importance of implementing measures for controlling the risks of fire and explosion in workplace.

The construction site is a particularly high risk work environment and the risks of fires and explosions are high.

Employers need to address these risks and eliminate them or implement controls to minimise these risks.

The article goes on to provide a list of measures to assist in this regard including using flameproof equipment on site.

It’s also important to ensure all workers have received the necessary safety training, including white card training. See more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/05/controlling-fire-explosion-risks-workplace/#.V2AmTbt97IV
