While it is not legally required to have formal fire extinguisher training to use a fire extinguisher, it is highly recommended to receive some level of training before operating one.

This is especially important in workplace settings where employees may be required to use fire extinguishers as part of their job duties.

Proper training can help you understand the type of fire extinguisher needed for a particular type of fire, the correct way to use it, and the limitations of a fire extinguisher. It can also teach you to remain calm and focused in an emergency situation, helping you to make quick and accurate decisions.

In addition, some workplace safety regulations may require employers to provide fire extinguisher training to their employees. This can include hands-on training with live fires or simulated fire scenarios, as well as classroom instruction on fire safety principles.

Overall, while it is not a legal requirement, it is important to receive training on how to use a fire extinguisher properly to ensure the safety of yourself and others in case of a fire.

There are several ways to learn how to use a fire extinguisher. Here are some common methods:

  1. Attend a fire extinguisher training class: Many organizations, such as fire departments, workplaces, and community centers, offer fire extinguisher training classes. These classes can provide hands-on experience using a fire extinguisher, as well as classroom instruction on fire safety principles.
  2. Watch online training videos: There are many online training videos available that demonstrate how to use a fire extinguisher properly. These videos can provide an overview of the PASS technique and other basic fire safety principles.
  3. Read the instructions on the fire extinguisher: Each fire extinguisher comes with instructions on how to use it properly. It is important to read and understand these instructions before attempting to use the extinguisher.
  4. Participate in a fire drill: Many workplaces and organizations conduct fire drills that include practice using a fire extinguisher. This can be a good way to gain hands-on experience in a simulated fire scenario.
  5. Ask a fire safety professional: If you have specific questions or concerns about using a fire extinguisher, you can always consult with a fire safety professional. They can provide guidance and answer any questions you may have.

Remember, it is important to always prioritize safety when using a fire extinguisher. If you are not confident in your ability to use a fire extinguisher, evacuate the area and call the fire department immediately.

The four basic steps in using a fire extinguisher are commonly referred to as the “PASS” technique. “PASS” stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze, and Sweep. Here’s a brief overview of each step:

  1. Pull: Pull the pin on the fire extinguisher, which is usually located at the top of the extinguisher, to break the tamper seal.
  2. Aim: Aim the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire, not at the flames themselves. This will help extinguish the fire at its source.
  3. Squeeze: Squeeze the handle of the fire extinguisher to release the extinguishing agent. Release the handle to stop the flow of the agent.
  4. Sweep: Sweep the extinguisher from side to side, aiming at the base of the fire. Continue sweeping until the fire is completely extinguished.

It’s important to note that the PASS technique is a general guideline and may not apply to all types of fire extinguishers. Always read and follow the instructions on the fire extinguisher and receive proper training before attempting to use one.

The three elements of fire learnt during the fire extinguisher training, are fuel, heat, and oxygen. These elements are often referred to as the “fire triangle,” and all three are necessary for a fire to ignite and continue burning.

  1. Fuel: Fuel is any material that can burn, such as wood, paper, fabric, or gasoline. Fuel provides the energy needed to sustain a fire.
  2. Heat: Heat is the energy source that raises the temperature of the fuel to its ignition point. Heat can come from a variety of sources, such as a spark, an open flame, or friction.
  3. Oxygen: Oxygen is necessary to support combustion, and it is the oxidizing agent that allows the fuel to burn. Without oxygen, a fire cannot continue burning.

To extinguish a fire, one of these elements must be removed. For example, using a fire extinguisher on a fire removes the oxygen element, smothering the flames and extinguishing the fire.

Yes, in Australia, fire extinguisher training is required by law in some workplaces. Under the Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations, employers are required to ensure that their workers are provided with adequate information, training, and instruction on how to use fire extinguishers.

The exact training requirements vary depending on the workplace and the level of risk. For example, in workplaces with a low risk of fire, workers may only need to receive basic instruction on how to use a fire extinguisher. However, in high-risk workplaces, workers may need to receive more in-depth training that includes practical exercises with live fires or simulated fire scenarios.

It is important for employers to ensure that their workers are trained in using fire extinguishers, as this can help to prevent fires and minimize the risk of injury or property damage in case of a fire.
