  • Creating a company-wide line of fire program presents a significant opportunity for injury prevention.
  • You are in the line of fire when you are at risk of coming into contact with a force your body cannot endure.
  • The Line of Fire program is aligned with Life Saving Rules.
  • The program aligns with our shared goal of zero injuries and zero incidents.



The success of the Line of Fire Program in any company is a function of a strong commitment to the thorough implementation. Companies that implement the program become part of a broader community of practice in the prevention of serious injuries and fatalities.
