Fire Safety 101: How To Prevent Fires At Work And Ensure Employees’ Safety in a Fire Emergency
|Date / Time:
We're living in an age of safety automation, and this is particularly true in the area of fire safety. Most companies have systems that monitor, assess, and respond to any situation triggered by fire-related events. These advances are critical and have vastly helped to reduce the impact of fire damage and save lives.
But there is a downside: These systems can provide a false sense of security. Even if you have a highly advanced automated system in place, it's no substitute for regular checks, inspections, and training.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
