Bulk store inspections

Saturday, January 12, 2013

NATIONAL inspections of supermarket bulk stores would soon be conducted following the destruction of a prominent outlet in Tavua earlier this week.

National Fire Authority chief executive officer John O'Connor said NFA would inspect bulk stores of supermarkets and make relevant recommendations to business operators to ensure they complied with fire safety requirements.

He said it was very difficult to fight and contain these fires because of the storage of combustible materials with hazardous materials such as kerosene, benzene, gas and such materials.

Mr O'Connor urged business owners and in particular the supermarkets to ensure that their businesses complied with NFA's fire safety requirements and the storage of materials.

He said instructions had been given to fire safety inspectors to ask for material safety data sheets for hazardous materials so that proper storage could be enforced.
