Means of Egress and Fire Protection

General Background:

    Over 150 major fires occur in workplaces on an annual basis. Fire is the third leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that most of these accidents can be prevented if proper safety precautions at job sites are initiated. This poses a serious problem for exposed workers and their employer. The OSHA Means of Egress and Fire Prevention Standards establish uniform requirements to ensure that fire hazards in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, safety procedures implemented, and that the proper fire prevention information is transmitted to all affected workers.

    The following course outline is designed to make employees aware of the requirements for these two subparts as well as the role they play within them.
