Commercial buildings typically contain a variety of different fire risks and these change over time. In fact, common hazardous materials include paper storage, oxygen tanks, fuel, and cleaning chemicals. As a result, your risk assessment will identify these hazards and where they are stored, allowing you to take the necessary precautions that ultimately reduce your overall fire risk.

In fact, these people who are at greater risk of having an injury when a fire breaks out need to be just as protected as others. As a result, ensuring that the entire workforce and all occupants and visitors are protected is integral for any building owner. Some people may need special assistance and this should always be accounted for when creating your fire safety plan.
