Fire Extinguisher Safety Training
Understanding how to prevent fires, the risks associated with fires and how to respond in emergency situations are important steps in maintaining a safe and secure workplace. Training employees on how to access and properly use fire extinguishers to control incipient stage fires is an essential part of an emergency preparedness plan to protect employees from harm.
Early intervention can make a huge difference in minimizing damage and preventing injuries. Helping employees understand when to fight or flee a fire emergency as well as how to properly operate an extinguisher and the PASS (Pull, Aim, Squeeze & Sweep) method can avoid panic and confusion. With training, employees can react confidently and take swift action in an emergency to help prevent fires, reduce damage and save lives.
