New Life Safety Code
New Life Safety Code
Product Code: 1633W

This 90-minute webinar will focus on important changes resulting from the CMS adoption of the 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101) and 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code (NFPA 99). CMS, through our State Fire Marshals, will begin surveying for compliance with these new codes beginning November 1, 2016. Be prepared—the new codes require facility maintenance, engineering, and administrative staff to do many things different then what was required under the previous codes. Avoid “K-Tags” as a result of not knowing new required elements of the code.
