    Fire Safety in Construction

    The Bank House, Bransford, Worcestershire, WR6 5JD

    It is estimated there are around 11 construction fires every day in the UK.

     

    The construction industry suffers losses estimated at around £400 million a year, which is over £1 million every day.

     

    There are plenty of sources of ignition on construction sites, some of which are:

    Electrical faults; unsafe equipment, over loaded circuits, incorrect use of equipment and extension leads.

    How works and a failure to manage them.

    Smoking, especially illicit smoking in areas where there are combustible materials etc.

    Temporary lighting and lamps.

    Portable heaters.

    Arson.

     

    There are also lots of sources of easily combustible materials, for instance; components of the building, stacked materials, packaging, flammable liquids etc.

     

    Good reasons to keep your site safe from fire.
