Each year in the U.S., 70,000-80,000 workplaces experience a serious fire. About 200 employees per year die in these fires and another 5000 are injured. Property losses from workplace fires exceed $2 Billion annually. The good news is that only about 15% of workplace fires result from a catastrophic failure of equipment, and 85% are caused by factors related to human behavior. This means that by being proactive, with a simple fire prevention plan and program, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of a fire in your workplace.
