Welcome to the OSHA Fire Safety Advisor

The OSHA Fire Safety Advisor addresses employer 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 Department of Labor developed the elaws Advisors to help employees and employers understand their rights and responsibilities under numerous Federal employment laws. Each Advisor includes links to more detailed information that may be useful to the user, such as links to regulatory text, publications and organizations.
