9781482221220: Fire Safety Management Handbook, Third Edition

Safety managers today are required to go beyond compliance with the latest fire codes to implement proactive fire safety management programs that improve profitability. By reducing property loss insurance premiums and fostering an efficient work environment to help realize quality gains, safety managers can add to the bottom line; however, they need a solid understanding of the duties and responsibilities for which they are accountable.

The Fire Safety Management Handbook is every safety manager’s must-have guide for developing a successful fire safety management program. Emphasizing proactive fire safety activities that achieve optimal results, the text presents the key elements that comprise an effective fire safety management program, including a basic knowledge of:

  • Types and functions of fire control equipment
  • Identification and control of hazardous materials
  • Homeland security during disasters and emergencies
  • Fire chemistry, building construction, and efforts to reduce losses due to fire
  • Commonly installed fire detection systems and their maintenance and inspection
  • National Fire Codes (NFPA) and federal, state, and local legislation and enforcement
  • Available resources, fire safety organizations, and the United States Fire Administration (USFA)

To provide current and future safety professionals with a better understanding of emergency management within the fire safety discipline, each chapter of the Third Edition includes learning objectives at the beginning and questions at the end. Case studies have been added, codes and standards have been updated, and a new chapter on emergency response planning has been included. Plus, a school fire safety plan that can be used as a template is now part of the appendices.
