We see them hanging on the wall every day but most people know very little about fire extinguishers. Use this course to educate your team on the fire tetrahedron, the types of fires that can occur in the workplace, and how and when to use a fire extinguisher. This course also describes when to evacuate and provides some proper maintenance tips for fire extinguishers.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify and describe the elements in the fire tetrahedron
  • Differentiate between the classifications of fire
  • Describe the basics of how a fire extinguisher works
  • Differentiate between the types of fire extinguishers
  • Describe the rating system used for fire extinguishers
  • State when to use a fire extinguisher
  • List in order the steps for using a portable fire extinguisher (PASS)
  • State when to evacuate due to fire
  • Describe proper fire extinguisher maintenance

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is the fire tetrahedron?
The four elements necessary to form a fire - heat, fuel, oxygen, and an unrestricted chemical chain reaction.

What is the fundamental aspect of all fire prevention?
Keeping the different elements of the fire tetrahedron separate - most notably, fuel and/or heat, since oxygen is in our air.

What are effective and recommended methods of preventing fires, reducing fire damage, and avoiding loss of life due to fires?
The use of fire sprinklers, fire detectors, alarms, and evacuating in the event of a fire.

When should a fire extinguisher be used?
When the fire is small, and only by those trained to use the extinguisher.

How should one use a fire extinguisher?
Use the PASS method - pull the pin, aim the nozzle at the base of the fire, squeeze the handle, and sweep the extinguisher.

What are the five types of fires?
Type A fires involve wood, paper, cloth, rubber, and many plastics; type B fires involve flammable liquids such as oil and gas; type C fires involve electrical equipment; type D fires involve rare metals, such as magnesium; and type K fires involve cooking oils and fats often used in commercial kitchens.

Can you use any fire extinguisher to put our any fire?
No, always use a fire extinguisher that's rated for the type of fire (A, B, C, D, or K) that you're trying to put out.

What should you do if you or someone you know catches on fire?
Stop, drop to the ground, cover your face with your hands and roll around on the ground, and try to use something like a blanket to extinguish the flames.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Aqueous film-forming foam extinguishers, or AFFF can be used on class A and class B fires. These contain a mixture of AFFF concentrate and water, and have a special nozzle that aerates the foam solution as it is expelled. The tank is pressurized with compressed air or nitrogen. When using this type of extinguisher, the foam should be rained down onto the burning material to create a blanket of foam to smother the fire and suppress the vapors.

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
