Exit Routes, Emergency Action, Fire Prevention & Protection

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910 Subpart E & Subpart L

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online certification course details planning and protective measures for emergency response and prevention. Course topics include applicable regulations, exit route requirements, safe evacuation procedures, emergency egress, and risk mitigation practices.

Hazards exist in every workplace that can cause fires and other emergencies. Emergency action plans (EAPs) describe the actions to take in emergency situations to promote employee safety. A fire exit route plan is a critical component of an EAP because it ensures there are enough exits and fire suppression equipment so that all occupants in a building can escape quickly in an emergency.

This course is for:
This fire protection certification is designed for employees in workplaces in general industry, except those in mobile workplaces such as vehicles or vessels. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and can save lives.

This online training course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for exit routes, emergency action plans, fire prevention plans, and fire protection.

Case Study: On Thursday, October 10, 1996, around 4 a.m., a five-alarm fire broke out on the 10th floor of the 70-story building located at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, New York. The fire began around an electrical closet near where construction was being performed. The fire started in the fifth floor electrical room, and moved to five different electrical rooms. Because of the need for more electricity in a building of this size, the electrical cabling continued to be added without removing old cabling. It was squeezed tightly, leaving no clearance between cables or the I-beam. The cables burned through the electrical insulation causing a large flow of current to surge through to other electrical rooms, leading to a fire. The fire took four hours to control due to several hindrances. Renovations were taking place during this fire and electricity was cut off to the fifth floor. This cut off the smoke and fire alarms on that floor as well. They never went off. Everyone was able to evacuate safely but at least 12 firefighters and five other people suffered minor smoke-related injuries.

Key Takeaway: To prevent these accidents from occurring, it is important to follow the guidelines for safe maintenance, safeguards, and operational features for exit routes. Employee alarms systems must be working. Exit routes must be clearly marked and employers are required to install and maintain an operable employee alarm system that has a distinctive signal for warning employees of fire or other emergencies.
