OSHA requires employers to provide a safe workplace, which includes preparing for all sorts of emergencies. Workplace emergencies can be natural or manmade. Either way, the biggest risk to workers often isn't the emergency itself, but injuries sustained when trying to escape because of panic, confusion, and lack of information.
This course covers the OSHA standards for fire prevention and emergency preparedness. Topics include general information about fire and other potential workplace emergencies and the OSHA requirements for exit routes, Fire Prevention plans, Emergency Action plans, and fire protection.
