Know the Work Area

All workers should know the locations of the nearest:
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fire alarm pull stations
  • Evacuation exits in the assigned work area
  • Emergency equipment, such as showers, eyewash stations, and fire blankets
A new hire should be walked through the work area and shown where all emergency equipment is located.
