Among all the safety problems an employee can encounter, fire can be the most frightening. Every year industrial fires cause hundreds of millions of dollars in damage and result in hundreds of employee injuries, a number of which are fatal. Yet many employees do not realize how their own actions can contribute to the risk of fire.
