While office workers often don't think much about the potential for fire while performing their jobs, there are more than 1000 fires in office environments each year. Such factors as employee complacency, office equipment and appliances that generate heat and large amounts of paper and other combustible materials can all contribute to office fires resulting in major property damage, serious injuries and fatalities. This program discusses how to prevent these and other factors from contributing to the ignition of fires and how to respond if a fire were to break out. Topics include good housekeeping, controlling electrical fire hazards, emergency action plans, evacuation procedures, and using the PASS system to extinguish a fire.
