Do all businesses require training in how to use a fire extinguisher?
Actually, no - All companies are required to have fire extinguishers readily accessible, with a maximum travel distance of 75 feet to get one in most circumstances. (In flammable storage areas the maximum distance may be lowered to 50 feet, and workers performing some tasks such as welding must have it immediately adjacent to the work area.) But does anybody need to be trained in how to use one? This is determined by a company's policy. If a company states that in the event of a fire there will be an immediate evacuation with no attempt to extinguish it then there is no requirement to train employees in the use of fire extinguishers that will not be used. Of course, the rapid suppression of a fire when it is small and manageable can save the whole business from destruction and even save lives.
