|- OSHA Fire Safety Advisor|
Welcome to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Fire Safety Advisor
This Advisor provides employers with their responsibilities under the OSHA general industry standards (29CFR1910), which cover the majority of workplace types. Employers of workers engaged in construction, agriculture, and marine industries are covered by other OSHA regulations and their obligations are not addressed by this Advisor.
Fire safety is also regulated by other authorities at the federal, state and local levels. Compliance with these other regulations is not addressed by this Advisor. The Advisor will ask you a series of questions designed to find policies and practices which make a particular standard applicable.
Following the session, the Advisor will identify OSHA standards and any specific passages that are applicable to your situation. In addition, the Advisor will list the questions asked during the session and your responses.
The OSHA Fire Safety Advisor is one of a series of elaws (Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses) Advisors developed by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to help employers and employees understand their rights and responsibilities under federal employment laws.
