Warehouse Hazards and Fire Protection: Preventing the Worst

Live Webinar: Tuesday, October 29, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to protect your workforce from warehouse hazards and prevent the risk of fires.


If you own or operate a warehouse, are you aware of the unique fire prevention and protection challenges that you face? Because of the nature of a warehouse’s contents and layout, fires can spread easily and be difficult to extinguish once they start, leading to millions of dollars in inventory and property damage; injuries; and, in some cases, fatalities.

Unfortunately, many organizations and warehouse workers are unaware of the particular hazards their facilities face and how to reduce their risk of fires. Don’t be one of them!

Join us on October 29 for an all-new webinar with retired Fire Captain James Kirsch where you will learn strategies for preventing and addressing fires in the challenging warehouse environment, which will ultimately protect your facility and workers and save you money. Capt. Kirsch will address answers to common questions such as: 

  • If my warehouse just passed a fire inspection, is it still at risk?
  • What are the requirements for the quantity and locations of fire extinguishers in warehouses?
  • Why is the type of construction of the warehouse important to know?
  • Should I be concerned with a risk of fire from solar panels?
  • What are the fire risks in an automated warehouses?

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Recognize common fire hazards at warehouse facilities;
  • Identify the appropriate fire protection equipment for your facility, including fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, alarm systems, emergency lights, and exit signs;
  • Create a fire emergency response team;
  • Develop a fire prevention plan; and
  • Implement good housekeeping and other best practices to reduce the risk of fires.

And, as a bonus for attending you’ll receive BLR’s Toolbox Talk—“Fire prevention for warehouse workers.”
