Fire safety is a must important even at construction sites like any other business. Buildings under construction can be more at risk to fire because workers use chemicals on the production site, which are flammable. And, also wind can be present frequently around in-progress buildings, which is capable of causing a blaze to spread.
The survey reveals that there are many fires on construction sites and in buildings undergoing renovation every year, several people including many workers are killed or injured, and properties are destroyed. For this, the industry suffers disruption, which may experience a lot of unexpected costs, from which many never recover. Fires on a construction site can start from any number of sources from a lightning strike to burning or ignition, and many of them can be difficult to contain.
