Fire Watch Technician Training

To comply with NFPA requirements as well as to guarantee the health and safety of everyone in your business and the building itself, it is critical to be prepared for a fire.

Program participants will learn the skills and knowledge they need to execute fire watch tasks through Fire Watch training.

Importance of Fire Watch Technician Training

When working with welding equipment in a confined space or in an area with possible fire hazards, it’s critical that the welder has extensive safety training and understanding in order to operate their equipment safely.

Many people, however, ignore the importance of having backup or someone to watch them who has been trained as a fire watch or hole watch.

The watch ensures that the atmosphere is safe, that all procedures are followed, and that they can summon assistance in the event of an emergency.
