Fire Safety (Construction)

Overview :

Flammable and combustible liquids present a significant danger in the workplace. When stored or used improperly, these liquids can cause significant property destruction, worker injuries, and even fatalities. OSHA provides rules on the safe storage and use of flammable and combustible liquids to help minimize the dangers the liquids impose in the workplace.

The bulk of the OSHA regulations on flammable and combustible liquids are included in OSHA's General Industry regulations, 49 CFR 1910, in Subpart H, Hazardous Materials. Additional rules are found in the OSHA regulations covering the Construction Industry, 49 CFR 1926, Subpart F, Fire Protection. This course focuses on the General Industry Standard, but the relevant fire protection regulations from the Construction Standard are included here, too.
