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.
