Fire Training for Your Remote Workforce

Understanding the Fire Risk Landscape 

Whether you are aware or not, the very equipment powering work from home - from laptops to charging stations - is a potential risk that requires vigilance and prevention strategies. Understanding the fire risk landscape is the first step to keeping safe: 

  • Electrical Fire Hazards: Overloaded power strips, daisy-chained extension cords, and plugged-in electronics can lead to electrical fires, especially in older homes with outdated wiring. 
  • Cooking Hazards: With working lunches being the norm, the risk of kitchen-related fires increases. Distractions in a high-heat environment can lead to dire consequences. 
  • Combustible Materials: Clutter, paper, and other materials used frequently in home office settings can easily become fuel sources during a fire emergency. 

By taking the course, participants familiarize themselves with these risks and learn practical measures to minimize them, keeping their home workspaces safe.
