Course topics include applicable regulations, the necessary equipment to fight fires, extinguishing systems, storage standards, and risk assessment procedures.

Fire prevention and fire protection training are critical elements of a safe workplace.

This helps reduce the risk of injuries or fatalities caused by workplace fires and explosions.

This course is for:
This fire protection training online course instructs all employers and employees on how to control fire hazards and what to do should a fire occur in the workplace. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA, for fire protection and prevention safety training.

Case Study: In 1991, a fire broke out in a Hamlet, North Carolina, Imperial Food Products plant when a fryer ignited. The flames spread by way of the grease left on the building's floors. The building's sprinkler system failed leaving employees to struggle through billowing smoke in order to find the exits, only to find some of them locked. Overcome by carbon monoxide, the employees collapsed, their bodies in piles on the factory floor. Of the 81 employees present that day, 25 died and 40 were injured. Eighty years after the United States vowed to protect its workers after the horrific Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, the nation was left asking itself again, "How could something so tragic happen?" A 2017 book by Temple University professor Bryant Simon titled The Hamlet Fire: The Story of Cheap Food, Cheap Government, and Cheap Lives examines this question. Simon agrees that locked doors and lack of safety drills contributed to the loss of life. However, he suggests that much more was at work to cause such a tragedy: a lack of enforcement of regulations, the demand for cheap labor, a "culture of silence and intimidation" from workers and management, and a general trend in the United States of devaluing workers and their safety.

Key Takeaway: No worksite is immune from fire hazards. Implement and follow the safety policies set forth by OSHA.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 addresses general industry standards, while Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards. Fire protection and prevention are addressed in 29 CFR 1926 Subpart F, as well as subparts of 29 CFR 1910.
