Fire codes are crucial for the safe operation of labs. When working in labs, researchers rely on electrical appliances and volatile chemicals, as well as fire and gases, making them potentially dangerous places.
However, all too often, managers and staff members don’t know all the risks. Nor do they realize that fire codes even exist—forget about fully complying with them. But, it’s crucial to be fully informed on—and in compliance with—the pertinent fire codes in your facilities. Preparation and knowledge will prevent a failed fire marshal inspection or a worse outcome (such as an operational shutdown or disaster).
