Benefits of Using Fire Warden System in WorkPlace
Safety in the workplace takes many forms but fire safety must take precedence above all. Fire is one of the most devastating accidents in terms of fatalities & destruction of property. According to a study conducted by Firstmats, there are approximate 22,000 workplace fires every year in the UK alone!
Unfortunately, this number would rarely be zero, but with the right precautions and system in place, we could reduce this to the minimum.
Fire Warden System by Guard Patrol Products
One such system that aims to bring down the fire hazards & improve fire safety/maintenance is the Fire Warden system by Guard Patrol Products.
This system follows the golden words—Prevention is better than cure. It is designed for fire marshalls to perform their duties with relative ease, helping them reduce the risk of fire in residential apartments, high-rise office buildings, and public places.
The versatility of this system makes it easy to integrate it with any workplace regardless of its shape & size. All locations of the existing fire alarm system components are verified and equipped with a handy Touch button. These buttons are made from stainless steel, having unique serial numbers that can be read via a tool like the MiniTool Pro Data reader.
The fire marshal uses the data reader to record all their visits to the locations in the office like a fire escape, fire extinguishers, staircases, etc. It can also be used to keep a check on the maintenance of fire extinguishers.
Here are the core benefits of using the Fire Warden system in the workplace.
Minimising Risk of Fire
The idea is to prevent a mishap altogether and the fire warden system lets you do that. Map out the entire premises and identify all places that propose a risk of fire. List them in order of hazard level and place touch buttons near them.
The marshal will visit each of them, check if everything is up to the mark, and read the checkpoint with a data reader. These checks help curb the risk of fire, nipping the problem at its source.
Getting Ready for Adversity
Regardless of how hard we try, it isn’t possible to always avoid an accident. The fire warden system helps get the workplace ready for any emergencies.
Place checkpoints near all emergency exits & extinguishers. Upon visiting, the official can check the area’s readiness to be used in case of a fire emergency. They can then clear any obstructions.
Helps with Maintenance
Workplaces are equipped with fire extinguishers to fight back against fire-related hazards. They require regular maintenance to perform as intended during a fire outbreak.
Checkpoints placed on fire extinguishers could be programmed to be read at longer intervals. Post maintenance which includes basic inspection, hydro pressure testing & refilling, they can mark the checkpoint OK.
Ease of Review
Not all workplaces are of the same size. As the area grows, so will places where touch buttons could be placed. All this data could be a task to handle, but not with our fire warden system.
All the readings collected by the data reader can be transferred and viewed on the desktop with the date and time, making data collection & review a walk in the park.
Equipped with the Fire Warden system every workplace can win in the fight against fire before it starts & be ready for it should the situation arise. The Mini Tool Pro reader comes with a 24-month warranty and is backed by our experts who offer telephonic support, free of charge!
