Good training, to the point, and in simple language. Everyone should take this course to safeguard against fires.
The OSHA Fire Safety Training is designed for all kinds of audiences as fire safety is the responsibility of everyone on the worksite including managers, supervisors, and employees. The training is intended to familiarize learners with the basic fire hazards, fire prevention strategies, fire protection measures, and the course of action to follow in case of an emergency.
Each year, workplace fires lead to thousands of injuries, hundreds of fatalities, and millions of dollars in property damage. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), a fire department responds to a fire every 24 seconds. In the past five years, general industry and construction industry fires have resulted in an average property loss of over 1.8 billion dollars.
Planning and training personnel is the key to responding to emergencies efficiently and minimizing injuries, fatalities, and property damage. Employees must receive training in the pertinent elements of the fire prevention plan and emergency action plan upon initial assignment, when the employee’s responsibilities change, and when the plans are changed or updated.
This course is geared towards OSHA’s general industry standards for fire safety. Although OSHA’s fire safety standards for the general industry and construction industry are very similar, there are some deviations due to the incomplete nature of buildings and other structures that are associated with the construction industry.
Please note: This training does not supersede or substitute for any local or state laws, codes, ordinances, regulations, or amendments thereto. This training should only be used as a nonbinding supplement to a jurisdiction’s requirements.
