Portable Fire Extinguishers-Toolbox "PASS" Talks

To download occupational health safety and environmental free documents in editable format; visit our blog at; where you can download all free content. Following are key points taken from the original "Portable Fire Extinguishers-Toolbox Talks-PASS" file:

The control of any accidental fire eruption due to any reason within the facility, the proper knowledge for the portable fire extinguisher’s maintenance, easy availability, and usage play a vital role. The staff, employees must fully be trained for its proper use in the event of any unwanted fire incident. For this reason, fire extinguisher training is very important from time to time repeatedly. Such things are important enough to need repeating. Earlier this month you were given the proper instructions on how to use a portable fire extinguisher.

All the person staff, employees, or fire control supporting personnel should make sure to remember the PASS operating technique for portable fire extinguishers. 

What Word does “PASS” stands for?

P - Pull the pin. 

Pulling the pin unlocks the operating lever or button so you can discharge the Portable fire extinguisher easily. While using the fire extinguisher, always stand at least 6 to 8 feet from the fire.

A - Aim low 

Always point the portable fire extinguisher nozzle or hose at the base of the fire.

S- Squeeze the lever below the handle. 

Squeezing the Portable Fire Extinguisher’s lever discharges/releases the contents/chemical of the portable fire extinguisher. When the user of the fire extinguisher releases the lever, the discharge or release of the content or chemical stops. Some models of portable fire extinguishers have a button to press rather than a lever.

S - Sweep 

Moving carefully and safely toward the fire, always keep the portable fire extinguisher aimed at the base of the fire and sweep from side to side until the flames appear to be out.

Watch and examine the area. If the fire starts up again, repeat the Portable fire extinguisher “PASS” technique.

Confined Space Entry Training-PPT

What is the Objective of this Training PPT?

Company/Organization require that all employees who must enter into confined spaces receive training as to the hazards, procedures and equipment required to do so safely.


The entrant is the man who enters a confined space. The attendant is the man who stays with the entrant external to the confined space and is accountable for helping the entrant existing to the confined space and calling for emergency assistance when needed.

The health and safety representative is the qualified and competent personnel who evaluates the hazards, defines required devices, equipment and precautions and release/issue the Confined Space Entry Permit.

Goals and Objectives:

At the end of this confined space entry training session, you will:

  1. Be familiar with the hazards and requirements of “safe” confined space entry.
  2. Pass a 10-question quiz with a score of 100%.

Confined Space Entry - Hazards

  1. Both animal and plant life need Oxygen (O2) to survive. One of the basic hazards of entering confined spaces is oxygen deficiency.
  2. When oxygen (O2) is present in concentrations less than 19.5% the atmosphere is said to be Oxygen(O2) deficient.
  3. Oxygen(O2) can also be present in concentrations that are too high.
  4. Oxygen (O2) in concentrations greater than 23% is too oxygen-rich and can cause combustible materials to ignite very quickly.

Oxygen (O2) deficiency can be caused by several processes:


Oxygen(O2) is used up by the person who is in the confined space and turned into carbon dioxide.


Denser materials push Oxygen (O2) out of the occupied space.


Oxygen(O2) is reacted with other materials to make other compounds.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

After Oxygen(O2) is delivered to body organs and used by organ cells, it reacts with carbon to make Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Red blood cells carrying Carbon dioxide (CO2) turn blue. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is supplied back to the human/animal’s lungs by the red blood cells and discharged into the surrounding atmosphere. 

Oxygen (O2) 

The human body needs oxygen (O2) to carry out cellular metabolism. Oxygen (O2) is brought in through the lungs and transported to cells of human body organs by the red blood cells. When blood is rich in Oxygen (O2)  it turns red.

Given a fixed amount of oxygen as you would have in a confined space, the respiration of oxygen causes Carbon dioxide (CO2) to increase. When Oxygen(O2) decreases to less than 19.5%. the atmosphere is said to be Oxygen (O2) -deficient, putting occupants of the confined space at risk of losing consciousness and death.

Health And Safety Precautions Every Business Should Take

Almost in every business including industrial, manufacturing, oil and gas, facility management, and many more sectors, health and safety for the employees, visitors and environment is essential. here you will find some important information regarding your business and worksite. To download health and safety documents in an editable and ready-to-use format, just keep visiting hsedocuments frequently.

There are many health and safety regulations that businesses must abide by to ensure they are providing a safe working environment for their employees. Here are some of the health and safety precautions that every worksite or business should take.

By law, any worksite premises must have adequate fire escapes and staff need to know which actions to take in the event of a fire, including where the fire assembly point is. In terms of prevention, anything that could be a fire hazard should be established and precautions are taken where necessary and where possible to limit the chances of a fire.

In case there is a fire problem fire extinguishers and fire blankets should be available and staff should be shown how to use them. Some members of staff should be trained in basic first aid so they can take necessary actions where required. These staff members should be specified as first aiders and can then administer aid when there is a need for it. First aid kits should be provided, with the number and location of these depending on the size of the premises.

Everyone should be told where they are. Equipment used by staff must be safe for its intended use and important that equipment be tested regularly. PAT testing is one way of testing electrical appliances. Items are tested and then given a pass or fail sticker accordingly. There are no specific laws regarding the regularity of PAT testing, but this should be done at least once a year. Where accidents do occur, they should be recorded, whether they were avoidable or not, and whether the business was at fault or not.

This is usually done in the form of an accident book. Accidents can then be reviewed from time to time, patterns established, and actions are taken to prevent regular or unnecessary occurrences. It is unacceptable for safety to be at risk due to employees not having the required equipment. If something is required to do the job, then it must be provided with employees trained on how to use it safely.

Any equipment that is not deemed safe for use must be taken out of action immediately before an accident, not in response to an accident. Potentially dangerous equipment should only be used with caution and only when required. Where this is the case precautions must be taken; staff need to be trained to use it adequately and protective clothing must be worn where relevant, for example, goggles and safety helmets.

Warning signs should be utilized wherever there is a safety risk so it is clear what people should and shouldn’t do and where dangers may present themselves. Training needs to be provided for anything that employees need to do to carry out their job in a safe manner.

Typical examples include training how to lift to avoid injury and how to sit correctly at a desk. These are just some of the more basic precautions and regulations businesses should take. There will be other health and safety issues in addition to these, with the specifics varying from industry to industry.
