COVID has changed practically everything we do in the workplace, especially safety protocols. Businesses have worked hard to make changes to prevent the spread, such as stringent cleaning and social distancing.

However, there’s one safety protocol that COVID hasn’t changed: All your employees must still be in compliance with fire extinguisher training. But what has changed is how we train.

Obviously, training can no longer be in the large group setting. Travel is discouraged, sometimes not possible or allowed. Businesses are having massive staff turn-over which makes it challenging to ensure training is accessible to all employees. Other concerns are making it affordable, convenient and easy to complete.

Brothers Fire & Security has the solution to all those concerns. We offer a fire extinguisher course on our Life Safety Made Simple online academy. How to Effectively Use Fire Extinguishers provides important education, interactive testing and certification. The course is convenient and based on your employee needs. Most importantly, it meets OSHA compliance requirements. There’s more good news—the platform brings training costs way down.

Training That Raises the Bar

While some online courses are a brief (and often dull) five-minute demonstration, our fire extinguisher course raises the bar to teach your employees:

  • Different classes of fires and what extinguishers to use.
  • The correct way to use different types of fire extinguishers.
  • The Fire Triangle, how it works and what to do.
  • Firefighting concept P.A.S.S. (Pull the pin, Aim at base of fire, Squeeze handle, and Sweep side to side).
  • Life-saving steps to take when there’s a fire.

At the end of the course, each attendee who successfully passes the interactive quiz receives a Certificate of Completion.

How to Effectively Use Fire Extinguishers is ideal for employees in almost any workplace, such as educational institutions, day cares, senior living, restaurants, retail, banks, healthcare, multi-family housing, franchises, hotels, office buildings, government centers and more.
