This interactive session will help ensure that your employees have the confidence and skills necessary to take action should a fire occur at your facility. Safety Links uses state of the art fire extinguisher training equipment from BullEx.
Our live fire BullEx system eliminates the need to use or waste actual fire extinguishers, thus reducing the cost and mess of the training. Instead the system uses high tech lasers with compressed air and water mist to exactly simulate how a real extinguisher works.
Our course includes instruction on the following items:
Overview of the fire protection equipment
Review of proper procedures and fire evacuation routes
Emergency preparedness training
Alertness to fire hazards
Review of the types of fire extinguishers and their proper use
Identification of the classes of fires and how each is fought
Hands on extinguisher practice

OSHA requires fire extinguisher training for your staff if they are expected to user fire extinguishers. Here is what the OSHA regulations say:
1910.157(g)(1) 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 firefighting.
1910.157(g)(2) The employer shall provide the education required in paragraph (g)(1) of this section upon initial employment and at least annually thereafter.
