This course covers basic fire safety principles, the recognition and prevention of potential fire hazards, and proper emergency procedures, such as fire extinguisher operation and maintenance.
Proper fire prevention and fire emergency training could mean the difference between a little bit of smoke damage and a major office overhaul. According to one source, between 70,000 and 80,000 “impactful workplace fires" occur in the U.S. each year. More than 5,000 of these result in injury, and 200 are fatal. But only 15 percent of them are a result of circumstances outside of human control.
Emergency preparedness and fire prevention education can effectively lower the risk of a damaging or even deadly workplace fire. Do you know how most fires start at work? Do you and your employees have the basic fire safety training needed to have to prevent catastrophic damages and injuries?
Employers should also conduct regular fire drills to highlight alarm recognition, designated meeting locations, and roll calls. This lets everyone see if and where changes need to be made before an emergency arises.
And last but not least, one major element of workplace safety training includes learning basic first aid skills. In case of an evacuation or fire-related injury, employees should be trained to care for the wounded until medical personnel arrive on the scene.
