As a business owner, your employees look for guidance and help. You train your employees for their role in your company, but you should also teach them the company's expectations of understanding protocols. A business should teach their employees things like fire safety and how to use a fire extinguisher. 

Let's say a fire breaks out in the staff kitchen due to someone forgetting their lunch was in the microwave. When a fire breaks out, what should you do? What are the steps to working a fire extinguisher? Follow these four simple steps to use a fire extinguisher if you don't know. 

  1. Pull the pin. This will break the tamper seal as well. 
  2. Aim low; you will want to point the extinguisher nozzle at the base of the fire.
  3. Squeeze the handle to release the extinguishing agent.
  4. Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out. 

By following the P.A.S.S. method, you can guarantee that your business and employees are safe. Implementing training over how to use extinguisher equipment can ensure your employees can take action to get what needs to get done if a problem arises.
