You have a vision of how you want your office space to look. You might have the opportunity to pick out the office chairs, desks, and other materials to create the ideal space. Making your office look the way you imagined is only half the battle, though. Have you thought about how general property insurance comes into play? Property insurance can provide coverage for fire, theft, vandalism, an entire collapse, explosion, and smoke.

Did you know 85% fires at commercial buildings are due to human error and property damages caused by fires cost $10 billion annually? Make sure your office isn’t a part of the statistic. It’s hard to predict when the next worst case scenario will occur, but you can be prepared for the outcome with property insurance.

Here are some ways you may be able to prevent a fire:

  • Declutter– Clutter can contribute to fires by providing fuel.
  • Assign Designated Smoking Areas – Smoke only in designated areas, and safely extinguish
  • Purchase Fire Extinguishers – Maintain the appropriate number and learn how to properly use a fire extinguisher.
  • Emergency Exits – Make sure you post an emergency exit plan and communicate that plan to your employees.

Whether you run a large operation or you’re just getting started, the best thing you can do for your business is to protect it. There is only so much you can do on your part to prevent incidents, like fires, from happening at your place of business.
