Weegy: You should then implement any precautions needed to control risks, [ including: storing chemicals according to the manufacturer's instructions on the safety data sheet keeping the minimum quantity of hazardous substances necessary storing incompatible substances separately taking steps to prevent release or leakage of dangerous substances keeping a spill kit near to storage areas, and ensuring staff are trained in what to do in the event of a spill cleaning up any leaks or spills that occur using appropriate precautions when handling substances - for example, wearing protective clothing or ensuring adequate ventilation ensuring employees who store and handle dangerous substances are properly trained checking containers used for short-term storage are properly labelled ]

User: describe practice that prevent fires from starting

Weegy: Get safety alarms installed in the house/office/ restaurants, and all associated areas which are prone to fire emergencies. Besides fitting them, they should be checked regularly, and their batteries need to be changed. [ Pick those alarms that have a BS kitemark. Keep a fixed fire guard around areas which are prone to open fires. These are available in any store, and they will give you proper protection against open fires. Place first aid box at places where they?ll come handy in case of emergency situations. All offices, theaters, restaurants, and other public places should be provided with an emergency exit, which will help you relocate safely from the place that has caught fire. Proper ventilation is very important, as it helps in reducing the risk of fire. Kitchen areas of the house are more prone to catch fire, so ask you constructor to design a proper kitchen for you that will be safe and properly ventilated. It is necessary that you unplug all the switches at nighttime before going to sleep. Also turn off the main knob of your LPG gas before going to sleep. A small leak from the LPG or any fluctuations in the electric current can also damage the fuses and electrical appliances, which can ultimately result in fire. Provide proper earthing to your electrical appliances that use large amount of current. If they are not earthed properly it is likely that they will damage the whole circuit of your house, in case of short circuits, and may result in fire. Never place any wires or electrical cables under the carpets, they increase the risk of fire Always look for electrical appliances that are rated correctly. Fuses and appliances that drive more amount of current can be problematic, and are at the risk of catching fire easily. Multi-way plug socket adapters should not be used in the houses. They increase the risk of short circuits and fire accidents. When you are using candles in your house place them in a proper candle holder. Keep them away from your children. If unknowingly they fall over the carpet, there are chances of fire accidents. Avoid smoking in the areas that are too compact and are not ventilated properly. ]
