The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) adoption of the 2012 edition of NFPA 101: Life Safety Code® requires that health care facility operators conduct a yearly inspection of fire door assemblies in accordance with NFPA 80: Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Help ensure your facility is prepared for CMS audits by knowing how -- and when -- you need to comply with NFPA 80 rules.
Ideal for facility managers and led by two Code experts, this one-day course addresses the door types encountered along the egress paths within a health care facility, the door locking means permitted, the thirteen verification points required for the yearly inspection of swinging fire door assemblies, and the skills required to serve as the Qualified Person who is permitted to perform the inspection and testing in accordance with NFPA 80.
This class is special because you'll leave with the knowledge required to help ensure your facility's fire doors are in compliance with the new CMS mandates, and to assist your staff in knowing exactly what CMS surveyors will request during audits.
At then end of the day, you should be able to:
- Judge the adequacy of door type for each common health care occupancy wall opening in accordance with NFPA 101
- Apply inspection, testing, and maintenance provisions for fire door assemblies in accordance with NFPA 80
If you are responsible for NFPA 101, NFPA 80, and CMS compliance (for example: facility managers, building owners, consultants, and contractors) find the time to learn from the NFPA and DSSF experts on December 2, 2016 at NFPA Headquarters in Quincy, MA. Learn more now and register.
