EXCERPT:

Industrial fires pose one of the greatest threats to organizations in terms of financial, human, and property losses. Understanding fire-safety basics, the physics of fire, and the properties and classes of common hazards is key to designing fire-safety management programs that not only protect an organization's assets but also ensure the safe evacuation of all involved. Fundamentals of Fire Protection for the Safety Professional is dedicated to helping safety managers incorporate fire-hazard awareness and protection into their safety-management plans. This book takes an in-depth look at fire hazards in the workplace - from the substances required to do business to the building construction itself - and provides practical fire-safety principles that can be applied in any work environment. Readers will learn how to develop emergency-action and fire-prevention plans; implement effective alarm, detection, and fire-extinguishment systems; and develop a comprehensive fire-program management plan that is in compliance with FEMA, OSHA, EPA, and NFPA standards. Each chapter concludes with questions for the reader. Answers to chapter questions and a comprehensive glossary and index are provided at the end of the book.
