A well-trained employee with an on-site fire extinguisher can put out small, non-hazardous fires effectively.
However, to do this safely, the employee must have knowledge of equipment and portable fire extinguisher limitations, in addition to the hazards associated with fighting fires. Small amounts in an empty can need to be stored in food-grade plastic containers or fire fighting emergency response plan large much more than.

If professional firefighting services are available in your area, immediate evacuation may be the best policy if responders can be at the site quickly. There may be situations where employee firefighting is warranted to give other workers time to escape, or to prevent danger to others by spread of a fire.
If a hazardous substance emergency could occur at your facility and you plan to have any of your employees participate in the emergency response, you are required to have an Emergency Response Plan in writing and available for inspection consistent with 29 CFR 1910.120(q) (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response).
