Fire Prevention
National Summary

This topic covers OSHA’s fire prevention requirements, including fire prevention plans and fire protection systems.

OSHA strongly recommends that all employers develop a written fire prevention plan (FPP) and requires FPPs for workplaces where specific fire hazards are present. Fire and evacuation drills are not specifically required by regulation; nevertheless, they are an effective means of communicating emergency procedures to employees and ensuring that planned emergency procedures work as intended.
