Short circuits and blasts can always happen due to certain fluctuations in the voltage. In such cases, it is best to stay prepared with fire extinguishers, sand and also a high quality alarm system that starts pouring water through the sprinklers to stop the fire from spreading further.

Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are a must. Keep several fire extinguishers at regular distance. Also, make sure you know how and when to use them during emergencies. This is important, as most people go in shock or blank when mishaps occur.

Flashlights

Blackouts and power problems can always happen in industries and offices. In such conditions, it’s not wise to walk around in search of flashlights as you may fall down the stairs or even get hurt from your machineries. At times like these, pocket flashlights or emergency flashlights seem to be the life savers.

Pocket lights

Emergency lights

Emergency lights or automatic generators can help you avoid accidents caused due to power cuts. These emergency lights are ideal for small and big industries.

Tools

Like homes, offices and industries should always have their first aid kits and a higher level of security with CCTV surveillance cameras. If one tries to cure an injury, the other tries to prevent mishaps by keeping a close watch at all the corners of the workshop.
