What’s wrong with this video? Are we this complacent? Is Everyone a reporter? – What Would YOU Do? (Note: Raw News Footage. The first minute should show you all you need to know!)
The requirements of this section apply to the placement, use, maintenance, and testing of portable fire extinguishers provided for the use of employees. The selection and distribution section does not apply to extinguishers provided for employee use on the outside of workplace buildings or structures.
Where extinguishers are provided but are not intended for employee use and the employer has an emergency action plan and a fire prevention plan that meet the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.38, then only the requirements of the inspection, maintenance and testing and hydrostatic testing sections apply [29 CFR 1910.157(a)]. To comply with OSHA requirements, consider the following:
- General requirements
- Selection and distribution
- Inspection, maintenance and testing
- Hydrostatic testing
- Training and education
