Nice article. To deal with fire safety or any type of safety hazards at the workplace, employers must install safety alarms, fire extinguishers should be there. Employers can install safety apps at their workstations and integrated with a wearable device to provide an immediate response to the accidents or to avoid the accidents. https://aware360.com
