OSHA
Fire is a severe hazard to medical facilities. According to the National Fire Protection Association or NFPA, between 2011 – 2015, there were, on average, 5,750 fires per year originating at health care properties, which, on average, caused two deaths, 157 civilian injuries, and approximately $50.4 million in property damage per year during that time. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers maintain a Fire Prevention Plan. The best way to keep yourself and coworkers safe is to be informed on fire safety and prevention. This informative module provides a comprehensive overview of fire prevention responsibilities, reporting of potential fire hazards, types of fire extinguishers, and what to do in the event of fire.
