This week is Fire Prevention week in North America. MSA offers many FREE Fire Safety resources available to support your business. 

Having a Fire Safety Plan is critical in ensuring your workplace is prepared in the event of a fire. Below are the provincial legislated requirements of what should be included in a Fire Safety Plan:

  • Sounding the fire alarm & notifying the fire department;
  • Evacuating endangered workers, with special provisions for workers with disabilities;
  • The quantities, locations and storage methods of all flammable substances;
  • The designation of persons to carry out the fire safety plan and the duties of the designated persons;
  • The training of designated persons and workers in their responsibilities for fire safety;
  • The holding of fire drills (at least once during each 12 month period);
  • The control of fire hazards.

Below are further educational resources to promote Fire Safety Education:
