Comprehensive Employee Fire Extinguisher Training Program
Since 97% of all industrial fires are extinguished with portable fire extinguishers, it is critical that employees understand when and how to use extinguishers correctly. OSHA guidelines (Section 1910.57) also mandate that employers providing extinguishers for employee use also provide an educational fire extinguisher use program. Keller Fire & Safety’s certified technicians are available to provide such a comprehensive employee training program designed using realistic fire situations to correctly demonstrate the best possible measures that should be taken should a fire occur. This training allows you to meet the OSHA requirements. Most importantly, trained employees are more than twice as effective at extinguishing a fire as untrained employees, so don’t delay in planning your safety class!
