HSE Construction: Precautions to Prevent Fires (UK) Mobile App

The HSE Construction: Precautions to Prevent Fires mobile app helps prevent fire-related accidents at construction sites. Flammable materials, including solids, liquids and gases, are often used at different points during building construction. This handy app makes it easy to prevent accidents by having a prevention plan in place and taking steps to reduce problems related to combustible materials.

Construction fire prevention is critical to the health and safety of your workers. Checking for portable fire extinguishers, prohibiting smoking around flammable liquids and having a fire suppression system in place is the best way to protect construction workers. Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, the construction site risk assessment app helps improve safety in construction and helps keep construction workers safe.
