The hospitality industry has many significant issues when it comes to fire protection, prevention, and guests’ safety. The biggest factors come simply from the nature of the industry. In a normal workplace, management can ensure employees are trained in proper emergency procedures, how to use a fire extinguisher, and the like. But every day, hospitality businesses (such as hotels, tourist attractions, restaurants, etc.) see new people on property.
While hospitality centers are highly regulated in regards to safety, compliance begins with the proper attitude and recognizing the realities of the industry. Building and property managers should ensure that there is professional design, installation, and regular inspection of their fire protection systems including:
- Fire alarms
- Fire extinguishers
- Fire sprinkler systems
- Fire suppression systems
Every hospitality center is different. The restaurant in a hotel is going to be different than the one at an event center or standalone facility. Each will have different, if not similar, equipment. All facilities should have up-to-code fire protection systems (alarms, extinguishers, sprinklers, etc.) and building managers should have effective evacuation plans in place and posted, along with scheduling regular inspections. Without quickly containing the fire through these measures, the chance of injury, death, and property damage skyrockets.
The best ways to mitigate your business’ fire risk is to have a licensed fire protection company, like PT Prima Tunggal Perkasa to come to your property and give it a top-to-bottom inspection. Not only can they give your business a fresh set of risk management eyes, they also can help you design effective fire protection equipment and systems, create a proper employee training program, and ensure that all your equipment is working as expected.
