Coffee Break Training: Fire Investigation Health and Safety   [open pdf - 193KB]

"Fire investigation health and safety covers a wide variety of issues that are too often ignored or not practiced within the investigative community. All fire investigative personnel should define safety as 'attitude and behavior.' The number one threat to personnel at a scene is 'complacency,' which should never occur, with the number one priority of everyone being 'your personal safety.' The only one responsible for your personal safety is 'you.' To ensure this from the outset, the basis for selection of personal protective equipment (PPE) at a scene is 'hazard and risk assessment.'"
