Description: 29 CFR part 1915, Subpart P (``the Standard'')
requires employers to develop a written fire safety plan and written
statements or policies that contain information about fire watches and
fire response duties and responsibilities. The Standard also requires
the employer to obtain medical exams for certain workers and to develop
training programs and to train employees exposed to fire hazards. The
Standard also requires employers to create and maintain records to
certify that employees have been made aware of the details of the fire
safety plan and that employees have been trained as required by the
Standard. OSHA uses the records developed in response to this Standard
to determine compliance with the safety and health provisions of the
Standard and they are critical in OSHA's effort to control and reduce
injuries and fatalities related to fires in shipyard employment.

Acting Departmental Clearance Officer.
