Where does everyone go for up-to-date workplace fire statistics - injuries, damage costs, etc.  Is there a particular site you like or do you just wait for National Safety Council's annual report?

Like jason said below, check www.nfpa.org, and search
NFPA is good but I'm looking for more workplace fire info. It probably all stems from NFPA anyway but I was hoping for some kind of repository site.
NFPA and NIOSH both have good information, & I use them both quite a bit.

The NFPA is a great source. The Fire Marshall Bureau and other State and County Fire Associations have great tidbits too! Statistics on Code Enforcement from the Urban Institute have stats and info about fire related casualties; National Fire Academy Research in Maryland has info on fire safety. The Federal Bureau of Investigations has compiled Uniform Crime Reports; A principle site is the National Fire Incident Reporting System of the National Fire Data Center, ran by the U.S Fire Administration has allot of information contained within the Uniform Coding for Fire Protection (NFPA 901) FEMA Keeps Fire statistics at www.usfa.fema.gov/statistics/; One other site is the Center for Disease Control.  They keeps stats related to their area of expertise at www.cdc.gov/.../fire-prevention/fires-factsheet.html.

 

A great introduction to fire prevention, which I used is: 

 

Robertson, James C. (2010); Introduction to Fire Prevention ; 7th edition; Brady and Pearson; New

                 Jersey,      07438. ISBN: 13: 978-0-13-504194-9&ISBN: 10: 0-13-504194-5

 

I believe Amazon, and other sites, carry a digital download for IPads, Kindle, etc.

Hope this helps, Michelle.
