Are you worried about a fire causing devastation to your facility or jobsite? Or worse, causing a fatality? Do you have an OSHA-compliant fire prevention and emergency action plan in place? With over 40 years of combined fire experience, our presenters will cover key topics such as identifying potential fire hazards, implementing safety measures and emergency response planning. They will share the critical importance of fire prevention and the significance of developing a comprehensive plan to mitigate fire hazards.

  • What fire hazards to look for during an audit.
  • Common causes of fires.
  • OSHA 1910.39 and OSHA 1910.38
