Fire Safety Inspection
While everyone needs to know how to respond in an emergency, it is more important to take steps to prevent emergencies from occurring. We recommend a monthly Fire Safety Inspection including, but not limited to, the following items:
- Move flammable or combustible supplies off-site.
- If your Lease provides that chemicals or materials be stored on-site in quantities requiring MSDS sheets to be posted, they must be posted in central locations where they are visible to all. Flammable liquids should be kept in a flammable cabinet.
- Avoid using extension cords instead of permanent wiring. If used, extension cords need the three prong connections and no multiple outlets. Use breaker strips.
- All UL Listed authorized appliances and electrical cords should be in good repair.
- All electrical appliances for coffee, cooking or heating should be turned off every day before leaving the office.
- No smoking.
- Candles or open flames are not allowed in the building at any time.
- Potential fire hazards including, but not limited to, blocked stairwells, faulty fire protection equipment, leaks, or damaged wiring should be reported to the Property Management Office at 503 619 3100 immediately.
- Property Management does not allow space heaters, as they are a fire hazard.
- All emergency contact lists, physically impaired employee lists and other critical information lists should be kept current.
- Evacuation procedures should be reviewed among Suite Monitors for appropriateness on a regular basis. Procedures should be communicated to occupants in your assigned area at least quarterly.
We invite you to learn how to implement your own emergency preparedness plans by using the resources from our PREP website.
