Don’t Get Burned: Fire Prevention Week – October 9-15, 2016

Every year, fires costs business owners billions of dollars – and that number doesn’t even begin to measure the impact fires have on businesses and families of employees who are injured or killed by the blaze. 

Fire Prevention Week, October 9-15, 2016, is a great opportunity to remember that preventing workplace fires is not a yearly, monthly, or even weekly activity—it is a daily activity. Investigations reveal that most fires can be prevented if businesses consistently pay attention to a few, very specific hazards. To help you and your employees make it home safely each day, your Federated Insurance team is excited to share a new resource: a customizable, fire prevention checklist. (The latest full version of Adobe Reader is required to open and use the customizable checklist.)

Made available to all NATSO members through our partnership with NATSO, the checklist helps you identify and implement fire prevention practices that are needed most and can significantly impact your business. It also includes a few common fire hazards and also allows you the flexibility to add the unique risks and exposures your business faces.

For Federated Clients, create your own customizable checklist by logging on to Federated’s Shield Network® at www.federatedinsurance.com or contacting our Risk Management Resource Center at 1.888.333.4949 or riskmanagementmaterials@fedins.com.  At Federated Insurance, It’s Our Business to Protect Yours®.
