One of the biggest concerns for commercial business owners is keeping insurance costs down. Insurance prices can be steep, especially for businesses dealing with high-risk situations. Employees’ safety is always a top priority and there are several ways to insure this through building policies and safety rules. Establishing these policies and rules can reduce the risks of injury, damage and penalties.

Fire & Smoke Safety
Fire safety and prevention are extremely important in any industry. Implementing safety protocols not only gives you peace of mind, but it can also lower your commercial business’s insurance costs. Here are a few things your commercial business should update consistently in order to minimize risks and maximize fire safety.
- Fire Extinguishers: This one seems like a no-brainer, but it can be easy to forget to check that your fire extinguishers are up-to-date. Set reminders to inspect and replace your fire extinguishers, so that if an emergency ever does arise, you’ll be able to put out the fires with ease.
- Smoke Detectors: Another no-brainer, since these things let you know when they need to be fixed, but it is still good to routinely check smoke detectors. Quick, regular checks can ensure they are working properly without having to figure it out the hard way.
- Exits: In the event of an evacuation, working exits is a matter of life and death. Make sure all emergency exits are unobstructed and unlocked at all times. For some businesses, it may be smart to invest in a fire door to protect other parts of the property should a fire or other hazardous emergency break out.
- Ventilation: Proper ventilation is key in any building, but companies in manufacturing or ones that work closely with volatile chemicals need to pay extra attention to their ventilation systems. Make sure all vents, ductwork, and outdoor units are regularly cleaned, maintained and inspected for the health and safety of everyone in the building.
Keeping all of these items up-to-date ensures that inspections are passed, code requirements are met, and employees are kept as safe as possible.
