Clean up your act
Business fires can result from a number of things, including the accumulation of combustible clutter and hazardous chemicals like oil and paint thinner. Keep combustibles and hazardous materials out of your business by doing regular cleanups before accidents happen.
Keep an eye on areas that could produce a fire hazard, such as storing flammable chemicals in hot areas like the kitchen or near other flammable objects, like paper towels.
Keep combustible materials at least 18 inches away from heat sources like stoves.
When using harmful chemicals, be sure to wear gloves and a lab coat that is free of holes or tears.
