Everyone knows what a fire extinguisher looks like and what it is for. According to the fire safety rules, fire extinguishers should be in every office and even in every office. And most companies comply with these requirements. But, as it turned out, this is not enough for that in an emergency situation, office workers are not confused and still used the fire extinguisher for its intended purpose.
According to the sociological survey, about 30% of adults do not know how to use a fire extinguisher, not to mention the practical application. After all, the theory is, of course, good, but in emergency situations, when there is no time to read the instructions, people are lost, start to panic, which can lead to terrible consequences.
That’s why the employees of Dr Reddy’s, a leading manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, decided to approach this issue with all the responsibility inherent in true patriots
< blockquote>“our company’s mission Is to provide people with affordable and innovative medicines to help people live healthy lives. In achieving this goal, we are guided by the company’s values, one of which is security. We try to do this at all levels: from the safe production of high-quality drugs to ensure the safety of employees in a single office, ” said Irina Peksheva, engineer for labor protection of Dr Reddy’s.
It was Irina who appealed to the company of MANZAN with a request to instruct on the intended use of fire extinguishers. As the Director of the company MANZANA Anna Solovey said,”we are happy to take up the organization of this event, as in the current situation, such an experience can be useful to everyone.”
According to Anna, the company MANZAN quite often provides its customers with services for recharging or purchasing fire extinguishers. “Our customers have theoretical knowledge in this field, responsible for fire safety regularly attend training courses on fire safety. But with the practical skills we are faced for the first time.”
The training took place outside the city on a specialized fire-testing ground and consisted of 2 parts: theory and, of course, practice. As part of the theoretical part, the employees of Dr Reddy’s were introduced to the main types of fire extinguishers, their area of application and features of extinguishing fires and fires.
The organizers approached the practical part with full responsibility.
“in order for people to fully experience the scale and features of the fire, for the practice was given a full workplace of any office employee: a table, a chair and a TV screen (as a replacement for a computer),” said a representative of the company MANZANA.< / blockquote>
To set fire to the equipment provided was not work, which tells about the combustibility of materials. So, the fire is, it’s time to extinguish. All in turn dressed in a protective suit, gave up a fire extinguisher and sent to fight the elements.
“In practice, everything was much more difficult than it seemed on the theoretical part,” admitted the Director of the company MANZANA, who also decided to feel all the features of fire fighting.
All employees of Dr Reddy’s coped with the task set before them and were able to extinguish the blazing fire. I would like to congratulate the cadets with the instruction and hope that the acquired skills will never be useful to them.
