OSHA's Fire Prevention Plan regulation, found at 29 CFR 1910.38, 29 CFR 1926.24 and Subpart F requires a written plan that contains specific program elements. This plan addresses fire emergencies that could possibly occur on the campus of BYU-Idaho.
It is the intent of this university to assure that hazardous accumulations of combustible waste materials are controlled so that a fast developing fire, rapid spread of toxic smoke, or an explosion will not occur. Employees should contact the safety office (496-2414) for information concerning the hazardous properties of materials in their workplaces, and the degree of hazard each poses.
BYU-Idaho is committed to providing as safe, crime-free, and productive an environment as possible for university students, faculty, and staff. Employees should be prepared to cope with the hazards and disasters that threaten the day-to-day functions of the university. Fires, natural disasters, bomb threats, accidents, robberies, and assaults can and will occur. The entire plan can be viewed here.
