Safety Comes First

by Sonja Kraft

Here at Purnaa, one of our values is “Excellence”, which drives our commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. Recently we had a training to review company safety procedures, first aid responses, and ergonomic practices.

One of the topics covered was what to do in a fire and how to use a fire extinguisher. At Purnaa there are fire extinguishers next to the doors on every floor. Should there ever be a fire, it’s important we are confident in using these extinguishers; so we practiced during the training. Fun! We reviewed the importance of how to safely get out of a building that has a fire and the proper times to use the fire extinguisher. The fire extinguishers located at Purnaa are all-purpose ABC dry chemical extinguishers and can be used on almost any fire.
