This standard identifies the minimum job performance requirements (JPRs) for health and safety officer (HSO) and incident safety officer (ISO) for a fire department.

Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to specify the minimum JPRs for service as a fire department HSO and ISO.

This standard shall define HSO and ISO for a fire department.
