Fire Watch

Course Outline

Delivery: 1-2 Hours

The Fire Watch training program is designed to provide participants with knowledge and information necessary to perform fire watch duties. Any construction or industrial site engaged in “hot work”, namely work processes that can produce a source of ignition such as a spark or open flame, must implement a hot work management program including the provision of fire watchers. This training equips participants to identify and assess hazards that can give rise to fires. Most important to the participant will be a focused discussion on specific efforts they can introduce in their workplaces to prevent the potential for fires and related explosions and when necessary, the steps needed to respond to fires and explosions.
