Would you be interested in talking about arc flash labeling and training? An average facility would cost about $25,000 and complete in just 1 week. 734-502-1409

Applying NFPA 70E to real-world situations can be confusing and at times, overwhelming. The American Society of Safety Engineers is hosting a webinar tomorrow that will teach viewers practical information on how they can begin applying it immediately at the workplace.

This fire safety question involves the home, so far! Family members living in a Housing Urban Development (HUD) property had their fire extinguisher removed, permanently. A maintenance person stated that they are as much a danger to fire safety and it is better to leave to safety and call 911! Some on-line articles from the UK stated similar action have been taken at educational campuses. The same has been done in the United States. In these instances, the fire extinguishers were removed from common areas. In my families' case, the extinguisher is in the home! So, if anyone has knowledge of this taking place in other places, or knows of an organization that backs this, I’m interested in your opinions and advice. I feel there are times when the fire extinguisher can be a vital tool. Thanks

We use card stock on a one year basis. I do have a vendor offering to use bar coding to inventory and track our extinguishers, but we currently use two vendors.
