What is the value of effective training when the return on investment is difficult to quantify?

A National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) report published in September 2010 titled U.S. Experience with Sprinklers and Other Automatic Fire Extinguishing Equipment established that:

  • Sprinklers operated in 91% of fires in sprinklered properties (9% failure rate)
  • Over 90% of sprinkler failures are linked to human element failures
  • The loss per fire in sprinklered properties is up to 77% lower than in unsprinklered properties
  • Having a fire protection system that fails to operate is equivalent to not having a sprinkler system. In consideration that 90% of sprinkler failures are linked to human element failures, training can improve fire protection reliability and reduce losses.
  • Reasons sprinklers fail to operate:
  • System shut off before fire: 64%
  • Manual intervention defeated system: 17%
  • Lack of maintenance: 8%
  • Inappropriate system for fire: 6%
  • Damaged component: 5%

Simply addressing sprinkler system impairments, emergency response planning, and inspection testing and maintenance of sprinkler systems through training can have a dramatic impact on sprinkler operation.

Beyond sprinklers the value of training includes:

  • Improved Risk Levels
  • Increased effectiveness of site programs to prevent fires and/or control hazards
  • Personnel respond appropriately to site emergencies
  • Allowing the facility to meet requirements (internal company standards, NFPA, AHJ, or other standards)
