Are You Up to Speed on Warehouse Fire Safety? Download the New Fact Sheet and Find Out
NFPA has created a downloadable Warehouse Fire Safety Fact Sheet that provides statistics, safety benchmarks, and best practices for keeping storage structures, contents and occupants safe from harm. The piece was developed following last month’s popular contractors, installers, engineers, facility managers, and code officials.
NFPA research shows that warehouse fires happen at a frequent rate with an average of 1,410 warehouse fires, two deaths, 20 injuries, and an estimated $159.4 million in direct property damage annually.
The new at-a-glance warehouse safety fact sheet draws on the guidance found in NFPA 13 Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems and covers:
- Warehouse Fire Data
- Responsibility for Safety
- Commodity Classification
- Sprinkler Design
- Management of Change
- Inspection, Testing and Maintenance
- Fire Prevention Measures
- Importance of ITM
