Why Are Industrial Fires So Dangerous in Pakistan?

Many Pakistani workplaces face an increased risk of fire due to:

  • Chemicals: Highly flammable liquids, solvents, and other chemicals are used in many industrial fields.

  • Electrical Problems: Old wiring or overloaded circuits are easily the main causes of fire theft in the building.

  • Combustible stuff: Clothes, wood, paper. All things burn fast.

  • Fuel Storage: Oils and others need the proper provision of safety tools.

 

  • Hot Machinery: Industrial sections are prone to sparks and heat due to the occurrence of industrial processes.

Consequences of An Out-of-Control Industrial Fire

Industrial fires are always disastrous especially in Pakistan due to the lack of adequate  protection systems.

The horrendous Baldia factory fire, which struck Karachi in 2012 and killed 250 people, simply emphasized how much risk the workers in Pakistan face. 

Industries like construction, mining, agriculture and fishing rank very high among workplaces that lead to occupational safety and health (OSH) injuries and in many cases result in loss of life.

There are serious consequences happen  due to uncontrollable fire including:

Life threat:

Lives are in danger and there is a probability that innocent people will be injured.

Business Shutdown:

The rejoining takes some time drawing major losses.

Factory Damage:

All facilities in industry can get destroyed all at once in seconds.

Bad Reputation:

The customers stay away if they are not satisfied with the safety measures.
