fire extinguisher on the wallPPE is an abbreviation that stands for fire regulations. It is often pronounced ''pepoż''. According to the Polish Language Dictionary PWN, it should contain a full stop at the end, i.e. ''ppoż.'', and the name itself, if it does not occur at the beginning of a sentence, should be written in lower case.

The necessary provisions on fire protection are regulated in Polish law by the Act of 24 August 1991 on fire protection. Additional and detailed information can also be found in the executive acts to this Act, i.e. regulations of the Ministers of Internal Affairs and Administration, Economy, Transport, Environment, Agriculture and Rural Development, and Water Management.

A fundamental issue in the workplace is safety. It is the responsibility of the owners and managers of buildings and the individuals, legal entities and institutions using them to provide us with this. With proper adherence to technical, construction, technological and installation rules, as well as applicable preventive rules (regulations), we are able to significantly reduce the risk of fire.

Also the employer, according to the law of 24 August 1991, has obligations regarding fire protection. These are also included in the Labour Code.

Employer:

  • It should provide the necessary means for first aid as well as fire fighting and evacuation
  • Designate employee(s) responsible for fire fighting, evacuation and first aid tasks

It is important that those responsible for fire protection tasks and management staff are well trained and know how to act at the time of an emergency. Therefore, specialised fire safety courses can be very important.
