Fire Prevention Plans

Course Introduction

Each year in the U.S., 70,000-80,000 workplaces experience a serious fire. Property losses from workplace fires exceed $2 billion annually. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Charts, 1992-2007, fires and explosions accounted for 3% of workplace fatalities in 2007.

Fire safety becomes everyone's job at a worksite. Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and about what to do in a fire emergency. If you want your workers to evacuate, you should train them on how to escape. If you expect your workers to use firefighting equipment, you should give them appropriate equipment and train them to use the equipment safely.

This course provides valuable reference materials for prevention of fire-related injuries in all workplaces.
