Fire protection is a crucial aspect of pretty much any business. Part of keeping your business safe from fire emergencies involves getting your fire protection systems inspected, typically once per year at least, and sometimes as often as monthly. While inspections can seem like a chore, it’s important that you don’t ignore them, as there can be serious consequences if you don’t get inspections completed. Find out what can happen if you don’t inspect a fire protection system.
Problems With Insurance Claims
If you miss an inspection, you could face legal complications regarding insurance. Oftentimes, your insurance carrier will ask you to provide inspection reports once you complete a fire safety inspection. If you can’t provide these reports, they’ll learn that you aren’t getting inspections done. As a result, they will have permission to deny you insurance claims.
Your Business Could Get Closed
While an inspection of your fire protection system can feel like a chore at times, it’s a worthwhile use of your time. Inspections can often be completed at times that are most convenient for you, based on what your hours of operation may be.
By getting your inspections done, you’ll be much better protected in the event of a fire emergency. Without that level of protection, a fire could lay waste to your business, and it’s possible that your business won’t recover, forcing you to close permanently.
It Puts People in Danger
Nothing is more important than the wellbeing of the people who are inside of your business, including employees and customers. If you don’t inspect your fire protection system, it puts everyone in your building at greater risk in the event of a fire emergency. Inspections are vital for ensuring not only that your equipment is functional, but also that the people inside of your business have the most protection possible.
