How will your employees respond to fire-related emergencies?
Will they evacuate or will they use portable fire extinguishers to fight fires?
Oregon OSHA’s portable fire extinguisher rule (437-002-0187), which applies to
businesses that have portable fire extinguishers, has exemptions that may apply
to your workplace. See Oregon OSHA’s Portable fire extinguishers fact sheet for more information.
Firefighters and a variety of automatic and fixed
extinguishing systems are also covered by Oregon OSHA’s fire protection
requirements. See the Rules tab for more information.
