You pay to have your fire extinguishers serviced on a regular basis. The value of extinguishers in preventing injuries and minimizing damage depends on how proficient employees are in their use. Business fire safety training and fire extinguisher training is important. According to OSHA Federal Guidelines, all employees must be trained in fire extinguisher use and safety procedures upon employment, and annually thereafter. Many insurance companies also require that employees be trained. To keep our clients safe and compliant Meridian offers a variety of certified, professional fire safety training programs and fire training resources.
