Why Training about "Fire Extinguisher Training - Fire Extinguisher Safety Training" Matters A fire extinguisher is a safety necessity in any home, office, manufacturing facility, construction site, and even vehicles. Workplace fires and explosions injure more than 5,000 workers each year and fatally injure more than 200 workers each year. OSHA requires that employers provide proper exits, fire equipment, and training to prevent fire related deaths and injuries in the workplace. It is important to understand what causes a fire, what fire extinguishers do, learn how to use an extinguisher, and learn about different fire suppressant materials. If you expect workers to take emergency action in the event of a workplace fire, then OSHA says you have to train each and every one of them to use extinguishers safely and effectively. Choosing the right type of extinguisher for the fire is crucial, otherwise you could spread the fire instead of extinguish it. Office of Compliance inspectors found 40 fire extinguisher violations during the 2005 Office of Compliance Safety and Health inspections of Capitol Hill. Such violations will fail to prevent small, manageable fires from becoming large, potentially dangerous ones. 29 CFR 1910.157
