National Fire Safety offers training to its clients in order for everyone to be prepared in case of an emergency. By the end of our training, your company will be up to the OSHA training standards and feel comfortable that if anything should happen, you will be ready for it.
To ensure your fire training is up to par, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), O.S.H.A., your insurance provider, and your local building inspectors require you to educate your employees on proper training in the case of an emergency.
For over a century, fire extinguishers have been a valuable tool for fighting certain small fires. Everyone should know how to use a fire extinguisher, but many don’t. Nor does everyone know that a specific type of extinguisher should be used for each class of fire.
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):
“Where the employer has provided portable fire extinguishers for employee use in the workplace, the employer shall also provide an educational program to familiarize employees with the general principles of fire extinguisher use and the hazards involved with incipient stage fire-fighting. This training will be provided upon initial employment and at least annually thereafter…”
WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A FIRE
- Sound the alarm
- Get everyone out
- Call the Fire Department
- Assess whether the hire is appropriate for a portable fire extinguisher
NEVER FIGHT A FIRE IF
- The fire is spreading beyond the spot where it started
- Your back is not facing an escape exit
- The fire blocks your only escape
- You don’t have adequate fire-fighting equipment
Cutting Insurance Rates with
Improved Fire Protection Programs
Your insurance policy is the number one driving factor in making the Life Safety decisions of your business. There is no cut rate insurance plan for life safety. You either meet the codes or you don’t. Your business protection and payment on claims depends on it. Additionally, it is up to the business owners to ensure all life safety inspections are completed and ensured compliant by qualified service providers. Insurance companies are not in business to pay claims, but rather focus on keeping businesses safe with claim avoidance. That’s where we come in.
ALL ABOUT RISK
Your life safety program is an extension of your business insurance policy. All of the mandated inspections and services performed lessen the risk associated with your business. This directly reflects in your premium rates. Count on us to meet the minimum requirements and maximize the reduction of risk. This benefits both your business health and your bottom line. The principle is the same as having an anti-theft device in your car. If you have one, you’ll get better rates. We work directly with your insurance provider to maximize your savings based on this same principle
Our exclusive Rate Assurance Program guarantees maximum insurance savings, eliminates claim issues, and enables your Life Safety Protection Program to pay for itself. National Fire Safety has the respect from insurance companies, contractors, building officials, fire marshals, and more. We train them at our own state of the art training facility. Now that’s Respect!
