OSHA 10 Hour Training for General Industry: Emergency Response & Fire Prevention
One critical element required for an employer to provide a safe and healthy workplace to all employees is providing the training and preparation required for a calm, effective response during a workplace emergency. OSHA considers fire prevention and emergency response critical elements in creating and maintaining a safe workplace for all employees, contractors, and visitors. As such, OSHA requires these important protections and enforces their implementation.
This program discusses the specific actions workers should take during the various types of emergencies that could occur in or near their work area, as well as their roles and responsibilities when it comes to housekeeping and fire prevention. Other topics include:
This program provides one hour of training on Emergency Response and Fire Prevention, which is one of the six mandatory training topics selected by OSHA as part of its 10 Hour Training for General Industry Program. In addition to the six hours of training on required topics, OSHA requires four more hours of instruction on various elective topics. The combination of required training and elective training must total 10 hours. The 27-minute video presentation in this program, when combined with the included sectional review quiz questions, will provide approximately one hour of training on Emergency Response and Fire Prevention. The content in this program is not certified by OSHA, but may be used by an organization as part of a training curriculum which is equivalent to that provided in OSHA's 10 Hour General Industry Training.
