The Standard also requires the employer to obtain medical examinations for certain workers and to develop training programs and to train employees exposed to fire hazards. Additionally, the Standard requires an employer 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.

areas, reporting worker overexposures to the OSHA, maintaining exposure 
records, and providing exposure records to current and former workers. 
The purpose of the Standard and its information collection requirements
