The purpose of these documents is to provide Florida Statutes 633.502-536 and Florida Administrative Code 69A-62 compliant programs for firefighter employers (career and volunteer) to use as a basis for developing their own programs.
Modify the program to make it employer specific and meet your needs. There are notations in red where information must be entered to make the program complete. If the information needed is in another document, SOP / SOG, rule or regulation, reference the document rather than copying it.
If you have an existing program, match it to this program and excerpt whatever is needed to make yours complete, if necessary.
At the end of sentences, paragraphs, etc. there are italics alpha-numerics. They are references to adopted OSHA regulations, statute or rule.
Any changes to this program should meet or exceed the requirements of the original program in order to maintain a compliant program.
Should changes in statute, rule or adopted OSHA regulations occur, the program will be modified accordingly.
As you review, adopt or modify this program for your needs, we encourage and invite you to contribute to this program. With your input, this program will become a living document that evolves in the best interests of safety.
