Use this poster to highlight the causes of work place fires and how employees can deal with them.
It's easy to remember how to use a fire extinguisher if you can remember the acronym PASS, which stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze, and Sweep. Always have the fire department inspect the fire site, even if you’re sure you've extinguished the fire.
Moving carefully toward the fire, keep the extinguisher aimed at the base of the fire and sweep back and forth until the flames appear to be out.


The fire department will check to ensure there has not been any spread of fire beyond the original ignition site.
Never turn your back on a fire; watch the fire area in case the fire re-ignites, and repeat use of the extinguisher if necessary. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the safe distance from which to fight the fire. Always call the fire department (911) immediately before attempting to extinguish a fire!


Most portable fire extinguishers must be used from a distance of 1.8 to 3 meters (6 to 10 feet) to be effective.
