This program is a microlearning. A microlearning is typically 1-2 minutes in length and quickly conveys information about a specific topic or subset or a larger topic.
Office buildings and other corporate facilities are often multi-story and contain many offices, cubicles, storage areas, and meeting rooms. The number of people in these types of facilities, combined with an abundance of combustible materials and potential sources of ignition, creates the potential for a hazardous office fire to occur. To help prevent fires, office workers must understand and follow good fire prevention practices, such as office housekeeping, which keeps combustible items from accumulating and removes them from proximity to heat sources.
This program discusses common workplace fire sources and how to use good housekeeping practices to prevent fires. Topics include:
- How keeping the work area neat and organized helps prevent fires
- The danger of electricity and electrical cords
- How additional heat sources in a work area can lead to fires
