According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, fires and explosions injure more than 5,000 workers every year. Don’t become a statistic! Training employees how to use fire extinguishers is an OSHA requirement for many organizations – and a common-sense way to mitigate risk. If a fire breaks out, employees who feel comfortable using a fire extinguisher are more likely to contain or extinguish the fire. Early-stage firefighting relies on quick thinking and immediate action to contain a fire and minimize damage and injury. Northwoods Fire Protection offers affordable, on-site certified fire safety training to make workplaces safer and compliant with NFPA10 (National Fire Protection Association) and OSHA requirements.
