Fire Extinguisher Training
Although you might have fire extinguishers placed appropriately throughout your workplace, they are only as good as the people using them at putting out fires. Fire extinguisher training is an important facet of commercial fire protection—and in protecting your employees’ lives, property, equipment, and more.
State Systems, Inc. provides annual hands-on fire training for your employees in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
Having a professional fire protection company train your employees with proper fire extinguisher use will:
- Increase the confidence of your employees in responding to emergency situations
- Increase the effectiveness of the fire extinguisher
- Potentially save lives and minimize downtime or loss from a fire
- Allow for possible deductions on your property’s insurance rates
- And more!
While you cannot prepare for a fire, you can be prepared to respond to one in the workplace. Although sometimes the best response is to evacuate a building, fire extinguishers can be extremely effective at diffusing small fires at the source. According to the National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors (NAFED), more than 94 percent of all fires were extinguished by portable fire extinguishers.
“Thanks for the engaging fire extinguisher training. Everyone I’ve talked with enjoyed the training and learned a lot.” – Dustin Wallace, ISO Representative & Environmental/Safety Supervisor for Volvo Penta Marine Products, LLC
