Fire Safety


Maybe most of you have never experienced a fire in the workplace or at home, but that does not mean they don’t happen. Each year there are thousands and thousands of fires. Many are small and can be contained quickly, however, far too many result in property loss, and more importantly, serious injury or even death. This Fire Safety course covers essential topics that will help you know what to do in case of a fire, including workplace fire hazards, using fire extinguishers, and RACE. This course corresponds to the Federal regulations F454, F517, & F518; while information is related to the aforementioned tags, individual facilities/buildings will still need to add organization specific information regarding evacuation and emergency procedures.
