Rhode Islanders have experienced the destruction of fire first-hand, with disasters ranging from the Outlet Company fire in 1986 to the tragic Station Night Club fire in 2003.

Each year there are more than 75,000 workplace fires, which cost businesses more than 10 billion dollars annually.

Fire safety becomes everyone’s job at a worksite. Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace, and what to do in a fire emergency. A fire safety plan should outline the assignments of key personnel in the event of a fire, and provide an evacuation plan for workers on the site.

This seminar is designed for company owners, managers, supervisors, safety committee members, human resources staff and risk managers to assist in developing an effective Emergency Evacuation and Fire Prevention plan at their facility.
