Manage exposure to fire and explosion risks

FIRE PROTECTION ENGINEERING PROGRAMS PREVENT LOSS

Managing fire and explosion risks is a critical component of any property risk management program for protecting personnel, facility assets, supply chain and market share. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments in the US responded to almost 38,000 fires at manufacturing and industrial properties each year between 2011 and 2015. These fires resulted in approximately $25.6 billion USD in property losses. In addition to physical instances, companies must also be aware of the below factors that could affect their operations:

  • Greater demands for aggressive environmental liability management
  • Stricter insurance and property loss control requirements
  • New technological advances for processing and warehousing
  • Increased focus on natural disaster risks and exposures

Partly due to this, organizations must adeptly manage their exposure to fire and explosion risks.
