The Fire Prevention Plan goes hand-in-hand with the Emergency Action Plan. Both plans should be included in an effective safety management system.

This course covers best practices and OSHA requirements detailed within 29 CFR 1910.39 (Fire Prevention Plans). According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 70,000 to 80,000 workplaces experience a serious fire in the United States each year. Therefore, everyone should be trained on fire prevention and how they can protect their worksite.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Statistics tell it all!


Each year in the U.S., 70,000-80,000 workplaces experience a serious fire. Property losses from workplace fires exceed $2 billion annually. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Charts, 1992-2007, fires and explosions accounted for 3% of workplace fatalities in 2007.

Fire safety becomes everyone's job at a worksite. Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and about what to do in a fire emergency. If you want your workers to evacuate, you should train them on how to escape. If you expect your workers to use firefighting equipment, you should give them appropriate equipment and train them to use the equipment safely.

This course provides valuable reference materials for prevention of fire-related injuries in all workplaces.

Course 718 Final Exam

Exam score sheet

After studying the course material and answering the quiz questions, it is time to take the final exam. We highly recommend answering the module quiz questions to check your understanding of the course material. The final exam questions are typically developed from these quiz questions.

OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to make sure students have gained a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a passing score on course final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams: as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.

This is an open book exam. Students are permitted to use a separate browser window to review course content while taking the exam. If you do not pass a final exam, you will see a "Retake Exam" button next to the course on your student dashboard.

If you have already paid for your certificate

If you have already paid for certificates, your exam score will be displayed on your student dashboard after successfully passing the final exam. If you chose PDF certificates, you can view and print your certificate and personal transcript from your student dashboard. If you chose original printed documents, they will be prepared and mailed to the address in your student account.

If you only want free training

OSHAcademy provides free access to all training materials, including course modules, practice quizzes, exercises, and final exams. However, exam scores, certificates, and transcripts are provided only if you purchase a certificate package to document your training. If you do not require official training documentation, we will archive your exam results should you decide to purchase official certificates later.
