Office Fire Hazards and Their Elimination
Flammable and Combustible Liquids
 

Flammable and combustible liquids are usually used in offices in small quantities. Materials such as adhesives, correcting fluids, aerosol containers, and cleaning products are highly flammable. Although only small quantities of liquids are used, many accidents can and do occur.

Although the liquids themselves do not burn, they continually give off ignitable vapours which; being heavier than air, creep along the floor and can catch fire easily from a source of ignition, such as electric sparks.

The fire hazards of flammable and combustible liquids can be minimized by following the fire safety rules:

Use nonflammable substitutes whenever possible.
Know the location of your nearest extinguisher suitable for liquid fires (Class B).
Keep occupants informed of flammable and combustible liquid hazards by posting safety precautions and the clear labeling of containers.
Never store flammable and combustible liquids close to stoves or heated pipes, nor expose them to the rays of the sun or to other sources of heat.
Do not permit storage of flammable and combustible liquids in open containers. Use approved containers and be sure they are closed after each use.
Wherever possible, keep the approved containers in either a storage cabinet or a storage room.
Only keep small quantities on hand ­ sufficient for your daily operations.
In areas where flammable vapours may be present under normal operating conditions, all electrical wiring and equipment should be of the 'Explosion­Proof' type, proper ventilation should be provided, and only indirect heat should be used
