Pre-Inspection Checklist

The Pre-Inspection Checklist has been designed to provide you with the information you need to inspect your building for common violations prior to our inspector arriving. Please complete the checklist and ensure all applicable requirements are met prior to your scheduled inspection.

The purpose of the Safe at Work program is:

  1. To identify and correct violations of the Ontario Fire Code, and
  2. To educate Chatham-Kent residents, businesses and property owners about fire and community safety.

Please email ckfire@chatham-kent.ca with any questions.
