Before the formation of the National Fire Protection Association, city streets were littered with sawdust, buildings were constructed with dry wood, and fire escapes did not exist. Today, the NFPA’s codes and standards protect people and property from fire destruction, and its research and education campaigns have reduced fire risk, injuries, and losses for more than a century.

On the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week, Technical Services Engineer, Brian O’Connor, joins the show to discuss how organizations can take advantage of decades of fire research and resources.

In this episode, Brian shares how to:

  • Fine-tune your organization’s fire prevention education
  • Avoid common fire prevention pitfalls
  • Form committees that secure buy-in for fire safety
  • Model the NFPA’s standards development process

The Employee Safety Podcast is hosted by Peter Steinfeld, SVP of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia.
