Administrative & Office Spaces
Office and Administrative Spaces where people normally congregate can be the focus of many building fires. Nearly one-third of office fires occur between 7 PM and 7 AM when fewer people are on-site, and they cause 67% of property damage. This is also true for fires that start on weekends: only 19% of office fires occur on Saturdays and Sundays but account for 31% of the total annual cost of property damage. Key risks include:
• Defects in electrical devices, e.g. computers, fans, etc.
• Short circuits in automatic (vending) machines, or kitchen fires
• Portable heaters
