Fire Protection and Extinguishers


The purpose of this safety program is to ensure the safety of all employees and visitors in the event of a fire. The program outlines the procedures for preventing fires and how to properly use fire extinguishers.


All employees are responsible for ensuring that the workplace is free of fire hazards. This includes keeping work areas clean and free of clutter, properly storing flammable materials, and reporting any fire hazards to management. In addition, employees are responsible for knowing the location of fire extinguishers and how to properly use them.

Management is responsible for providing fire extinguishers, ensuring they are properly maintained, and providing training to employees on how to properly use them. Management is also responsible for conducting regular fire drills and developing and implementing an emergency evacuation plan.


Preventing fires is the first step in ensuring safety. The following steps should be taken to prevent fires in the workplace:

  1. Keep work areas clean and free of clutter
  2. Properly store flammable materials in approved containers and cabinets
  3. Avoid smoking in the workplace
  4. Regularly inspect electrical equipment and wiring for damage or wear
  5. Keep emergency exits clear and free of obstructions
  6. Use caution when working with heat sources, such as welding or cooking equipment

Fire Extinguishers:

Fire extinguishers are an important tool in the event of a fire. The following guidelines should be followed when using fire extinguishers:

  1. Only use a fire extinguisher if you have been trained to do so
  2. Determine the class of fire before attempting to use an extinguisher
  3. Stand at a safe distance from the fire and aim the extinguisher at the base of the flames
  4. Use a sweeping motion to apply the extinguisher until the flames are completely extinguished
  5. Do not attempt to fight a fire that is too large or spreading rapidly
  6. Evacuate the area immediately if the fire cannot be extinguished quickly and safely


All employees should be trained on the proper use of fire extinguishers and the emergency evacuation plan. Training should be conducted at least annually and should include a review of the fire prevention procedures and the proper use of fire extinguishers.


The safety of employees and visitors is of the utmost importance in the event of a fire. By following the guidelines outlined in this safety program, fires can be prevented, and the proper use of fire extinguishers can be ensured.
