OSHA Fire Protection Codes & Requirements

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency responsible for ensuring safe and healthy working conditions in the United States, considers fire protection critically important due to the severe risks fires pose to workers' safety and health, including potential injuries, fatalities, and property damage. Implementing stringent fire safety measures helps prevent workplace accidents and ensures a safer environment for employees.

  • Emergency Action Plans (EAPs)
    OSHA requires workplaces to develop and implement comprehensive fire protection emergency action plans that detail procedures for reporting fires, emergency evacuation routes, and accounting for all employees after an evacuation.
  • Fire Prevention Plans (FPPs)
    Employers must create fire prevention plans to identify potential fire hazards, maintain proper housekeeping to prevent fire ignition, and ensure regular maintenance of fire protection equipment.
  • Portable Fire Extinguishers
    OSHA mandates that portable fire extinguishers be readily accessible, properly maintained, and appropriate for the types of fire hazards present. Employees must also receive training on their use.
  • Alarm Systems
    Workplaces are required to have reliable alarm systems to alert employees of a fire emergency, ensuring timely evacuation and minimizing the risk of injury or death.

The Four Types Of Fire Protection Systems

Fire protection systems play a crucial role in maintaining building safety by providing different methods to detect, suppress, and control fires efficiently. Grasping the details of each system is key to implementing thorough fire safety strategies.

  • Fire detection systems
    act as the initial safeguard against fires by detecting them as early as possible.They include smoke detectors, heat detectors, flame detectors, and fire alarm control panels. 
  • Fire suppression systems
    engineered to rapidly and effectively put out or manage fires. These include sprinkler systems, foam systems, and gaseous suppression systems.
  • Fire extinguishers
    portable fire suppression tools that enable individuals to rapidly put out minor fires. The main types of fire extinguishers include water extinguishers, foam extinguishers, dry chemical extinguishers, and C02 extinguishers.
  • Passive fire protection systems
    are engineered to confine or reduce the spread of fire and smoke within a structure. These types of systems include fire-rated doors and partitions, fire-resistant building materials, and fire dampers inside HVAC ducts.
