FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING: Why Should Employees Be Trained?
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Apr 12, 2017 - Fire Ranger, located at 4009 NE 6th Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33334, now offers employers an easy way to stay compliant with OSHA while ensuring their employees are professionally trained to handle fire extinguishers in the event of a fire hazard. Employers may be aware that it is a requirement to have fire extinguishers in the workplace to be compliant with their local city’s fire code but many are unaware that training their employees annually is also a requirement. It is important to note that OSHA prohibits employees from using fire safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers, unless they have been trained how to use them.
At Fire Ranger, we know the statistics are staggering and that having a complete fire prevention program in place is crucial for employee safety and compliance. One of the most critical roles business owners have in the workplace to prevent fires is training, training, training. There is no substitute for having a Fire Safety Plan and being able to implement it.
