Smoking materials (9%)

Smoking materials (9%)

This category will likely shrink in future studies to reflect the fact that fewer jurisdictions today allow smoking in offices as compared to 10 and 20 years ago. As of November, 2019, more than half the U.S. states and numerous cities and counties enacted laws that prohibited smoking in workplaces

How to prepare: Review your office smoking policy, have a safety and evacuation plan

If your office allows smoking, be sure to provide plenty of signs directing smokers to receptacles to safely dispose of hot ashes.

Exposure (4%)

Exposure is the spread of fire from an outside of an area to a structure. Office managers can’t do much to stop outside fires from spreading to their offices. But office managers  can prepare for this type of fire and help to minimize the spread of the flames.  

How to prepare: Improve passive fire protection; inspect automatic fire sprinklers

Passive fire protection is key. When building or remodeling an office, consider what could be done to slow the spread of the flames if a fire broke out. Also, make sure automatic fire sprinklers are working, and that employees know what to do if a fire spreads into the office.
