Fire and Life Safety

The key to safety is to know the hazards you are exposed to and how to protect yourself from harm. It is up to all of us to identify potential safety issues in the workplace before they become a problem.

Fire and Life Safety Codes and Regulations were developed to establish minimum requirements that will provide a reasonable degree of safety from fire and other life safety hazards encountered in buildings and structures.

Environmental Health and Safety fire and life safety programs are all managed with one goal in mind, to make the workplace safer. This is accomplished by identifying, correcting, and preventing safety hazards that could cause an injury or loss of life, and presents a potential loss to property. Some examples include but are not limited to: combustible storage too close to the ceiling, frayed electrical cords, and overloaded circuits.
