Firefighters’ workplaces are anywhere there are emergencies, and no two places are the same. It is a tough, demanding job and there is little time for traditional risk assessments about workplace hazards. Ability to adapt, improvise, and foresee fire progress are necessary skills for firefighters and fire officers. You will find Oregon OSHA’s requirements for firefighters in Division 2, Subdivision L: Oregon Rules for Fire Fighters [437-002-0182].
The industrial fire brigade – another type of fire service – is an organized group of employees trained and equipped to provide emergency services for one or more employers. A fire brigade can provide a full range of services (similar to a fire department) or specific services such as initial fire suppression and emergency medical care. Fire brigade members may be full-time or part-time responders. You will find Oregon OSHA’s requirements for firefighters in Division 2, Subdivision L: Fire brigades [1910.156].
