Fire Hazards in the Workplace

Many different workplaces contain significant fire hazards which pose a threat of harm to workers in these environments. If a fire breaks out, many buildings are required by law to have fire containment or extinguishing systems in place to limit the potential scope of the damage. However, if these alarms, sprinklers, or other devices fail, the individuals who are reliant upon them for their workplace safety may be gravely injured as a result.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of a fire in the workplace, it may be possible to seek financial compensation. The legal process can be intimidating and confusing, making it especially important for victims to consult with a knowledgeable attorney.

Possible Fire Hazards Found at Work

Depending on the workplace, a person may encounter a variety of fire hazards. These hazards may either be responsible for the starting of a fire, or may worsen one started by someone else’s carelessness. These hazards may include:

  • Electrical wiring defects
  • Defective electronic devices
  • Combustible chemicals or gases
  • Excessive machine friction
  • Violation of smoking or fire-related safety rules

In many cases, these problems can be worsened if significant amounts of paper or other flammable waste are stored in the workplace.
