Training and Education
Annually in the United States, there are over 1.8 million fires in the workplace and at home. These fires result in over 4,000 fatalities, 23,000 injuries and cause over $9 billion in property damage, not counting indirect losses such as business interruption. Even the best fire safety plan and equipment will not be effective unless your employees know how to respond in an emergency. Employer-sponsored training provides a safer workplace due to employees being more knowledgeable and confident in dealing with fire hazards. Both losses as well as downtime can be reduced or eliminated.
Our Fire Safety and Training program utilizes classroom instruction combined with indoor or outdoor hands-on experience in the proper use of fire extinguishers. The agenda can be customized to your facility's special hazards. General topics covered are:
- Fire hazards
- Emergency preparedness
- Identification of the classes of fires and how they are fought
- Review of various types of fire extinguishers and their proper use and limitations
- Overview of fire protection equipment installed in your facility
- Your procedures and evacuation routes in case of fire
The hands-on portion of the training can be live outdoors to provide actual firsthand incipient firefighting experience or simulated indoors with a state-of-the-art fire simulator system. The simulator system is a computer-driven interactive audiovisual system that reacts to the techniques being used by your employees. Both methods provide realistic experience and allow your employees to learn fire-extinguisher techniques and applications needed in case of an emergency.
One highly important benefit is that our fire safety and training program will satisfy your OSHA requirements for annual training for incipient fire training (CFR Section 1910.157G). Another important benefit is that your employees gain an appreciation for basic fire safety concepts, emergency preparedness, how to react in a fire, the protection equipment available in your workplace, and how to use the equipment to minimize loss. You’ll create a safer workplace, and your employees will gain important knowledge to keep them and others safer at work and at home. As an added benefit, we will also allow your staff to purchase top-quality safety equipment to help protect their families and property at home.
