This Safety in Fire Prevention online training course provides basic information on the precautions and procedures necessary for fire protection and safety in the workplace. Topics covered include fire prevention techniques, the types and classes of fires and fire extinguishers, and first aid procedures for dealing with fire-related injuries.
To the individual employee, fire can mean personal injury, injuries to co-workers, loss of work time (due to injury or damage to the facility), or even death. All of these consequences can dramatically affect work situations as well as personal lives. However, most workplace fires can be prevented.
The most frequent causes of fires are employees disregarding work procedures, using poor judgment, or having insufficient knowledge about how fires start. Most employees are also not adequately prepared to deal with a fire should it occur.
They are not clear about what, if any, actions they should take in their work areas. Frequently, they do not know what their evacuation routes are, or what safeguards to take when leaving their areas.
