The identification of the fire hazards:
There is a fire triangle, and the fire always results as a consequence of the completion of that fire triangle. The three components of the fire triangle are:
i- An ignition source that starts the fire.
ii- Oxygen gas present in the environment, helps in combustion.
iii- The fuel, includes all the materials that expand the fire like paper, fabric, wood, petrol, oils, fats, etc.

The employer, or the person who is responsible for the fire risk assessment of an organization must keep all these people in mind. Pay specific attention to the old ones, young children, pregnant ladies, and persons with disabilities (PWDs).
