What Is Fire Extinguisher Training?
National legislation states that, wherever there is a fire extinguisher, employees must also be provided with sufficient training in terms of how to use it. Fires are not as straightforward as people initially think – many of them require specialized protective agents and/or procedures to be put out.
The Fire Extinguisher program is designed to help employees understand which type of extinguisher is compatible with a particular category of fire. Furthermore, it provides students with information on the appropriate use and maintenance of these protection devices.
Who Needs Fire Extinguisher Training?
Any worker within the Canadian jurisdiction who is legally employed must undergo fire protection and emergency equipment training. The course is aimed at potential candidates looking to be hired, current professionals, and businesses that wish to comply with the latest safety regulations.
Although this Fire Extinguisher training program should be a priority for all employees, workers in the following industries are more likely to be asked to obtain this certification:
- Energy and Electricity.
- Oil and Gas.
- Automotive and Manufacturing.
- Education and Research.
- Agriculture and Food.
Who Is Responsible for Lone Worker Safety Training?
The Canadian government clearly states that it is the employer who is responsible for creating a safe working environment for their workers. As such, the former is required to ensure that all employees benefit from adequate Fire Extinguisher training.
At the same time, workers themselves are obligated to complete these training programs and apply what they have learned. Many future employees will often complete these certifications before getting hired in an effort to improve their resume and hiring prospects.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete the Fire Extinguisher course, employees must be able to associate each type of fire to the appropriate extinguisher agent. In case of an emergency, they must be aware of the rules for fighting fires, as well as of the situations when they should attempt to extinguish the outbreak using the correct handling technique.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Fire Extinguisher safety material should be reviewed within a year’s time from the date of the previous completion. Being able to act in a safe and efficient manner given a fire emergency is in the best interest of the worker, as well as of their employer.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Fire Extinguisher programs are commonly purchased together with Fire Safety, Electrical Safety and Awareness, Personal Protective Equipment, and Lockout/Tagout.
