The goal of fire prevention is to ensure the relevant personnel such as family members and staffs are adequately educated so that they can take precautions to ensure they don’t start harmful fires and, in the event that they occur, how to survive them. This is a proactive method of reducing emergencies and damages caused by fire.

Opticom ensures that the relevant assessments and trainings are done by qualified personnel to satisfactory level. Fire prevention usually involves the following;

Fire Risk Assessments

When it comes to safeguarding your business and personnel, fire risk assessment is crucial. While any appointed Responsible Person (RP) can undertake review and inspection, it is advisable to invest in a qualified third-party to provide proper insights and suggestions on how to bolster your safety precautions and ensure you’re operating well within regulation.

In accordance with the Legal Notice 59, it’s a legal requirement in Kenya that every premises where individuals work undertake a regular risk assessment. Although there’s no fixed guidance on how often you need to perform a fire risk assessment, it’s advised you review potential risks and perform any relevant actions at least once a year.

Opticom conducts comprehensive risk assessments ensuring  that all information is adequately captured and provides the most favourable recommendations. We walk with you to ensure that you meet the fire safety standards set by the regulatory bodies in place.

Fire Safety Training

Fires, whether large or small, pose a very real threat to worker health and safety. Having fire extinguishers, fire detectors and fire signage strategically placed throughout your workplace and home is not enough to ensure safety in the event of a fire. Fire safety goes far beyond having extinguishers on site. Workplaces and homes alike should have a complete plan in place so that everyone knows how to react in the event of a fire – whether man-made or naturally occurring.

Fire safety training provides people with the knowledge to react confidently and safely to prevent a fire from occurring as well as how to react to a fire. The training can mean the difference between life and death in the event of a fire. It also teaches on how to prevent fires from occurring, helping to eliminate the hazard of a fire before one occurs. With the knowledge that fire safety training provides, one can help ensure the safety of themselves and their co-workers and family.
