Employers should educate and inform workers about fire hazards on the job site and about what to do in an emergency with fire or explosions. Escape plans should be readily available and talked about if necessary for your industry. If your employees should expect to use equipment to extinguish fires, they should be properly trained and know how to approach dangerous situations until emergency services can arrive.
OSHA offers guidelines on how to prevent and protect your employees from fire. Depending on the job site, there are different regulations on how to approach dangerous situations.
