Fire Extinguisher EDUCATION AND Training PROGRAM
Did you know that OSHA and the uniform code mandates that employers provide an educational program and training on the proper use of fire extinguishers upon initial employment and annually thereafter?
In a fire emergency, 61% of people will grab a fire extinguisher and use it. Unfortunately, fewer than 50% of those–less than 30% overall–will actually be able to extinguish the fire. With proper fire extinguisher training, the success rate increases to 98%.
Vanguard’s Portable Hand Operated Fire Extinguisher Education and Training Program, satisfies OSHA requirements for annual incipient fire training (29 CFR Section 1910.157 g). and can reduce or even eliminate downtime and damage caused by incipient-stage fires. Our certified factory-trained technicians travel to your test site, with the appropriate equipment and customized course material, to educate and train your employees on the proper use of portable hand operated fire extinguishers.
