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.
