Recommened Best Practices for Fire Department Training Programs

The NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control, with input from the Department of Labor’s Public Employees Safety and Health Bureau (PESH) and fire service organizations, has developed a recommended set of “Best Practices” for use by fire departments. The purpose of these “Best Practices” is to assist fire departments in complying with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Regulation 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.156(c)(1), [“§1910.156(c)(1)”]. In New York State this regulation is enforced for firefighters and public employees by the DOL’s Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau (PESH).
