Fire Prevention Plans

Per the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), Regulations (Standards 29 CFR) Fire prevention plans. 1910.39, every employer with more than ten employees must have a written fire prevention plan for each of its buildings.

At a minimum, the fire prevention plan must include:

  • A list of all major fire hazards, proper handling and storage procedures for hazardous materials, potential ignition sources and their control, and the type of fire protection equipment necessary to control each major hazard
  • Procedures to control accumulations of flammable and combustible waste materials
  • Procedures for regular maintenance of safeguards installed on heat-producing equipment to prevent the accidental ignition of combustible materials
  • The name or job title for employees responsible for maintaining equipment to prevent or control sources of ignition or fires
  • The name or job title of employees responsible for the control of fuel source hazards

An employer must inform employees upon initial assignment to a job of the fire hazards to which they are exposed.  An employer must also review with each employee those parts of the fire prevention plan necessary for self-protection.
