Using fire regulations as a guide, employers can take a few simple steps to ensure employees stay safe from fire while working from home, according to one expert.

Fire protection plan

Fire plans are often mandated by local fire regulations, according to the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).

The plan should outline a safe and orderly route for residents to evacuate the building, the proper maintenance and cleaning necessary to prevent fire, and methods of control that will minimize the damage from fire, if it occurs, it was said.

“Plans should be specific to the property or business. Conducting an audit or review of the property or business will help identify factors that could affect fire safety. Points in this audit include site layout, entry and exit points, roads, use of the building, where and how the items are stored, how the items are used, water or fire service connections, alarm / sprinkler systems and many other factors. “Said CCOHS.
