They are no laughing matter, however, because the next time the event occurs, there may be an injury or damage. In order for incidents to be investigated and discussed, they have to be reported. They are easy to overlook, because there is no loss. Proprietors should ask workers to report near misses because of the wealth of accident prevention information that may be gleaned from them. Will workers report incidents? Most often they will — particularly if they are not punished for reporting the details.

Ordinarily, fire inspections are included as a part of a more general safetyoriented inspection. This makes the best use of time and effort. Once an inspector, whether he is the proprietor or a worker, has trained himself to recognize fire hazards, the inspection may contain fire prevention topics along with any others. The key to any safety inspection is knowing what to look for and what to look at. Following is a list of items that may be observed on a fire prevention inspection, or as a part of another inspection: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Brooms, mops, and other equipment stacked in front of circuit breakers Fire extinguishers located in blocked or not readily accessible areas Paints, solvents, and other flammable liquids in open or unmarked containers Doorways partially blocked by trash or equipment “No Smoking” signs missing Ground prongs broken off electrical tool or cord plugs Trash or debris piled in corners and under stairways Combustible materials stored near welding, grinding, or cutting areas Greasy or oily rags in flammable containers Evidence of smoking in nonsmoking areas Partially discharged fire extinguishers Dry weeds and combustible trash around refueling stations Frayed or damaged power cords Smells that suggest something is hot or burning Combustibles around portable heaters when in use Crop debris on machines that may come into contact with sources of heat These are some of the things to look at and conditions to look for as a part of a fire prevention inspection.

All workers must actively support fire prevention efforts. Without everyone’s help, it is nearly impossible to prevent fires. Of course, some fires may be started by natural causes, such as lightning, but most fires are caused by what people do or fail to do. ELEMENTS NECESSARY TO START A FIRE Three things are necessary for a fire to start: • Fuel • Oxygen • Heat These three elements make up what is commonly referred to as the fire triangle. Since plenty of fuel and air are available in most situations, it is clearly heat that starts fires.
