Date: 10-02-2021

At Timberfix, we do more than provide the best onsite safety and PPE products, we are also the leading experts when it comes to fire safety. Under Occupational Health and Safety laws, employers must have procedures and systems in place including mandatory fire drills, evacuation procedures, supervision, training, and coordination to protect employees and others in the workplace. Fire is one of the most dangerous workplace threats. Fire doesn't only result in serious injuries or fatalities; it can also cause extensive damage to your valuable equipment and your worksite. The most effective way to reduce this risk is to implement the correct fire prevention measures and safety products. Having mandatory on-site fire drills is one of the main methods you can use to protect your workplace. Here are some of our fire safety products that you should purchase to protect your business today. 

Site Evacuation Alarm

The Site Evacuation Fire Alarm should be the first item you purchase when it comes to fire safety. It is an industry-standard wireless construction alarm featuring a compact design that is practical and durable for use in the harsh environment of construction sites. These can also be installed anywhere including site offices or sheds. The battery-operated alarm features flashing lights and sirens for maximum impact. You can have confidence knowing that all your employees, including those with hearing impairments, will be notified using this alarm system. 

Fire Extinguishers

A fire extinguisher is the most effective fire safety product when it comes to fire-fighting. Having fire extinguishers in your building can be the difference between a small incident, that can swiftly be put out, rather than an overpowering fire that puts lives at risk and causes serious damage to property, equipment and machinery. At Timerfix we provide a range of fire solutions including CO2, Foam, Water, ABE extinguishers and more. 

Fire Blankets

A fire blanket is a safety product that is used to put out smaller fires. These are ideal for any kitchen fires, as a blanket is the safest alternative compared to water when oil or grease is involved. If an employee’s clothes catch on fire, a fire blanket can be used to wrap around them to suffocate the fire. These blankets are reusable and have an extremely long shelf life. The blankets work by smothering the fire which cuts off the oxygen supply. 

A Megaphone With A Siren

A megaphone with a siren is crucial for any fire drills as they assist the fire warden to clearly convey important information to employees with instructions for the emergency evacuation. In the event of an emergency, you need the equipment to support clear communication within the business. Our megaphones come with built-in switches that play siren sounds to alert people of a potential fire.
