Napo in… Fire alarm!

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Napo in… Fire alarm!

In this new animated film, Napo, the boss, and his colleagues guide us through the basic rules of fire and explosion protection in the workplace.

Three elements are needed for a fire to start or an explosion to occur: a flammable substance (fuel), air (oxygen) and a source of ignition (heat). To deal with high-risk situations and implement appropriate preventive measures, assessment is crucial.

To complement this EU-OSHA animated film, the INRS reminds us that “the fight against the risk of fire requires the implementation of technical and organisational measures aimed at suppressing any outbreak of fire and limiting the spread and effects of a fire.
