The purpose of the OSSA Fire Watch course is to ensure that workers are trained in theory and in practical exercises to demonstrate a basic level of knowledge and proficiency while performing Fire Watch duties and in the use of extinguishing equipment.

It should be noted that the training required to meet this Standard focuses on the needs of the “end-user”. Additional training may be required for Supervisors and Engineers to reflect their responsibilities for this critical safety work.
