Some precautions you can take

  • Remove all flammable (building) materials (pallets, wood storage etc.) around or near your premises.
  • Close outbuildings, bicycle sheds, storage areas properly on the last working day.
  • Close letterboxes (because of fireworks). If necessary, have the mail held until after your recess.
  • Check your exterior/ground lighting. If there are any dark corners, leave the lights on inside.
  • Make sure that containers or outdoor waste bins are not in sight. Remove them if possible, but at least make sure they are emptied.
  • Empty roll containers and store them indoors (out of reach of third parties).
  • Have construction containers emptied on time.
  • If (construction) containers cannot be placed in an enclosed area, place them at least 10 metres from the façade (secured with chain and lock to prevent movement).

Other points of attention are

  • Make your employees/services responsible for the closing rounds of your premises aware that they must carry out a comprehensive fire and closing round on the last working day of the year.
  • Pay extra attention to the entire outer shell: close all windows and doors. Do not forget any external (storage) areas.
  • Attention should also be paid to switching off (Christmas) lights.
  • Finally, check whether the alert addresses entered at your control centre are still correct.
