AFSA Releases New Hire Orientation Video

The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) has launched a brand new, updated version of its popular new-hire orientation presentation, “Day One, Safe One”. This members-only benefit is designed to give new hires an idea of what to expect on the job, and to make sure that they maintain a safe working environment from day one. This new AFSA employee orientation presentation helps to make onboarding a new employee fast and easy. The presentation incorporates an audio narrated slideshow with videos to make learning easy.

With a run time of less than 20 minutes, the presentation briefly covers a variety of topics and tools that a new hire might expect to see on the job, including codes of conduct and basic first aid as well as basic types of equipment such as job site personal protective equipment, tools, sprinkler heads, pipe, fittings, and much more.

The presentation, available at firesprinkler.org/education-center/safety-training/, may be streamed directly from the AFSA website from any web-enabled device, or the video file may be downloaded for offline use (134 MB).

This training presentation is an initiative of the AFSA Contractor Support & Advisory Committee. Jeff Livaudais, director of membership services and ASFA staff liaison to the Committee, says: “The new AFSA ‘Day One, Safe One’ is a quick, easy to use orientation for new employees to know what to look for on the job and for getting them started on the right track.”
