Fire Safety

Fire safety refers to the set of precautions, procedures, and measures taken to prevent fires, minimize the risk of fire-related accidents, and ensure the safety of individuals and property in the event of a fire. It involves a combination of awareness, preparedness, and proper safety practices to prevent fires from occurring and mitigate their impact if they do happen.


Fire safety is of paramount importance for the following reasons:

Preservation of life – Implementing measures helps protect individuals from harm and ensures their well-being.
Protection of property – By following fire safety protocols, the risk of property loss and destruction can be minimised, potentially saving valuable assets and investments.
Prevention of financial losses – Adequate measures reduce the risk of fire-related damages, avoiding financial burdens associated with property damage, repairs, and even insurance claims.
Safeguarding the environment – Since fires can release toxic gases, pollutants, and the destruction of natural habitats, fire safety practices can prevent such incidents and minimize harm to the environment.
Ensuring business continuity – By safeguarding the workplace against fires, businesses can protect their employees, maintain productivity, and avoid costly downtime.
Compliance with regulations – Many jurisdictions have specific codes and regulations that must be followed. Adhering to these ensures legal compliance and helps avoid penalties or legal consequences.
Promotion of public safety – By prioritising fire safety, communities can create a safer environment for everyone, reducing the overall risk of fire-related accidents and emergencies

What should a first-aid box in the workplace contain?

The decision on what to provide will be influenced by the findings of the first-aid needs assessment. As a guide, where work activities involve low hazards, a minimum stock of first-aid items might be:

  • A leaflet giving general guidance on first aid (for example, HSE’s leaflet Basic advice on first aid at work)
  • Individually wrapped sterile plasters (assorted sizes), appropriate to the type of work (hypoallergenic plasters can be provided if necessary)
  • Sterile eye wash and pads
  • Individually wrapped triangular bandages, preferably sterile
  • Safety pins
  • Large sterile individually wrapped unmedicated wound dressings
  • Medium-sized sterile individually wrapped unmedicated wound dressings
  • Paramedic shears
  • Disposable gloves (for advice on latex gloves please see Selecting latex gloves)

This is only a suggested contents list.

It is recommended that you don’t keep tablets and medicines in the first-aid box.






What is the primary survey?

The primary survey is a quick way to find out how to treat any life threating conditions a casualty may have in order of priority. We can use DRABC to do this: Danger, Response, Airway, Breathing and Circulation.
