Industrial fires pose significant losses for organizations, in several areas, including financial, human, and property. Understanding fire safety basics, the physics of fire, and the properties and classes of common hazards is vital in order to design fire safety management programs that protect an organization’s assets as well as ensuring safe evacuation of everyone. 

Fundamentals of Fire Protection for the Safety Professional provides safety managers with a guide for incorporating fire hazard awareness and protection into their safety management plans. 

Fundamentals of Fire Protection for the Safety Professional takes an in-depth look at fire hazards in the workplace, from storage of flammable chemicals, to fire safety considerations in building design,  as well as providing practical fire safety principles that can be applied in any work environment. Readers will learn how to develop emergency action plans and fire prevention plans, implement effective alarm and detection systems and fire extinguishment systems, and develop a comprehensive fire program management plan that is in compliance with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. 

Each chapter concludes with a summary and sample problems, providing an ideal training tool in the workplace or the classroom. The answers to chapter questions, as well as a comprehensive glossary and index, are included at the end of the book.

The following have been added or updated for the new edition:

  • The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals
  • Regulatory changes in the OSHA and NFPA standards
  • Trends in fires in the United States, including historical, and updated economic, industrial and statistical information
