NBC Regulations

• Fire protection in land-based buildings, offshore construction or onboard

ships is typically achieved via all of the following:
• Passive fire protection - the installation of firewalls and fire rated floor
assemblies to form fire compartments intended to limit the spread of fire, high
temperatures, and smoke.
• Active fire protection - manual and automatic detection and suppression
of fires, such as fire sprinkler systems and (fire alarm) systems.
Portable Fire Extinguisher
• Portable extinguishers are manufactured in a
variety of shapes & sizes. In order to avoid
confusion, extinguisher of the same type, should
be similar in shape, appearance and as far as
possible, in method of operation. It is also
advisable to standardize the sizes, if possible
although in some instances less heavy models may
be desired, where for example, women are likely
to use extinguisher.
• The extinguisher should be located in
conspicuous positions on bracket or shelves
where they can be readily noticed by persons
following the normal escape route like exits and
stair landing on each floor.
