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!

fire

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

OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to help ensure students demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a minimum score of 70% on final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams and, as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.

After you have studied all of the course material and taken the module quizzes, you can take the final exam. The module quizzes are optional, but we highly recommend you take each quiz, as the questions are similar to those on the final exam.

This is an open book exam. As you are taking the exam, if you find a question you are unsure of, you should use the course study guide or course web pages to research the correct answer. Don't worry if you fail the exam. You can study and retake the exam when you are ready.
