Ways to Make Your Business a Safer Place for Employees

When you own a commercial property, you need to do what you can to keep its occupants safe. These days, safety is about much more than installing a couple of fire alarms and hoping for the best. At Access Control Assure Australia, we specialize in property risk management. Here are some of our top tips for making your business building safer:

Property Risk Management

Perform a Property Risk Assessment

Although you can guess what some of your property’s risks are, you won’t be able to identify all of them. The only way to achieve that is through a thorough property risk assessment.

At Access Control Assure Australia, we perform risk assessments in major cities throughout Australia. After identifying the risks that are unique to your building and its contents, we’ll recommend changes. Sometimes those changes will involve removing risks altogether, but in most cases, you’ll need to take steps to mitigate them. Fortunately, we have the right solution for your situation.

Guard Your Building Against fires With a Risk Assessment

No building is free from the risk of fire. Each year, fires in Australia take 100 lives and cause 3,000 injuries. If you want to avoid contributing to that statistic, you need to protect your building in the right way.

Our property risk management team will assess fire risks throughout your building. We’ll also identify the safest available evacuation points. Our recommendations could include installing more fire alarms, using protective doors to prevent the spread of fires, creating a better evacuation plan, or another expert assessment. Once you have a better idea of how fire safety in your building should work, you can educate your employees.

Maintain Indoor Air Quality With Property Risk Management

Did you know that Australians spend around 90% of their time indoors? Your employees spend a great deal of that time in your building, so you need to do what you can to improve the air quality.

Issues such as poor ventilation can contradict the guidelines outlined in building codes. This may also increase fatigue levels, which then reduces productivity. Poor air quality is particularly problematic for those who have conditions such as asthma, which can sometimes be triggered by dust.

As a part of our property risk assessment, we test indoor air quality. If we find that yours is lacking, we’ll suggest practical solutions that minimize disruption to your business.

Reduce Trip Hazards

Trip hazards occur everywhere. In some cases, your employees will produce hazards by leaving items where they don’t belong. As an employer, you share responsibility with your staff for eliminating such problems.

Identifying trip hazards reduces the risk of a serious injury occurring in your building. With a property risk assessment, you may discover trip hazards that you didn’t know existed. In most cases, eliminating risk is both simple and cost-effective.

At Access Control Assure Australia, we perform property risk assessments in major cities across the country, such as Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. Our assessments are tailored to the environment we’re working with. If you’re ready to make your building a safer place to be, call (03) 9416 0774.
