Exit Routes, Emergency Action Plans, Fire Prevention Plans, and Fire Protection
Fires and explosions kill more than 200 and injure more than 5,000 workers each year.
There is a long and tragic history of workplace fires in this country caused by problems with fire exits and extinguishing systems.
OSHA requires employers to provide proper exits, firefighting equipment, and employee training to prevent fire deaths and injuries in the workplace.
This presentation demonstrate the hazards, emergency action plan, fire protection, fire prevention plan and safety tips.
This presentation is designed to assist trainers conducting OSHA 10-hour General Industry outreach training for workers. Since workers are the target audience, this presentation emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, and control – not standards. No attempt has been made to treat the topic exhaustively. It is essential that trainers tailor their presentations to the needs and understanding of their audience.
This presentation is not a substitute for any of the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 or for any standards issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. Mention of trade names, commercial products, or organizations does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Department of Labor.
