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.

A training program meeting this Standard would typically require 3 to 4 hours to complete depending on class size and number of Instructors.

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.
