OSHA Fire Prevention Courses in Wisconsin and Surrounding Areas

Blocked Fire ExtinguisherTC Risk Management Services provides fire protection training courses to aid in preventing workplace fires. Each program designed for your specific industry to best address the risk of fire and create ideal safeguards in your facility. TC Risk experts provide OSHA safety training across the United States, including fire protection.

OSHA Fire Protection Standards

Fire protection and prevention is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration per OSHA standards 1926.24 and 1926.150. At minimum, all employees must be trained to locate and use fire extinguishers at least once a year. You don’t want your company to burn down because a new worker didn’t know where a fire extinguisher was.

The legal requirements of fire protection training differ based on industry and facility details. The amounts of extinguishers and designated fire exits will be determined by the total number of employees, square footage, and other factors. TC Risk training uses your building’s structural design and occupational space to create custom evacuation plans for your workplace. During our hazard assessment we check if your building has enough extinguishers, sprinklers, and other safety features. 

Fire Training Guidelines for Classes A, B, C, D, & K

Fire protection training must address the three elements of the “fire triangle”: heat, fuel, and oxygen. Without all three parts of the triangle, a fire cannot start. Our training course will deal with how to identify these elements before they have the chance to combine.

The ability to recognize the risks when working with fuel types will lead to greater workplace safety. The fuel in the fire is used to designate is as a Class A, B, C, D, or K:

  • Class A: Combustibles including paper and wood
  • Class B: Gases or liquids including gasoline
  • Class C: Electrical components
  • Class D: Metals including magnesium
  • Class K: Oils and fats from cooking

If a fire does break out, knowing the difference between a Class A and a Class K will make it easier to stop the fire from spreading and put it out. While water can extinguish a wood fire, it will make an oil-based fire worse.
