Each year, the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA) hosts Fire Prevention Week from October 9-15. It’s the longest-running U.S. public health observance on record celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Founded in 1896, NFPA is a global self-funded nonprofit organization devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards. The NFPA’s theme this year reminds us that “Fire Won’t Wait,” so “Plan Your Escape!”
As we know, construction sites can be dangerous due to flammable materials, electrical service and the “hot work” required from soldering, grinding, welding and more where the equipment remains hot after the work has been completed. Not to mention, the potential dangers from smoking, cooking or using heaters onsite. Fires during construction can actually be even more damaging than a fire in a completed building due to things like the sprinkler systems or fire alarms not being fully installed and fire rated building divisions not being present. These features are of course designed to function once the buildings are occupied.
