Free webinar to detail changes to 2018 edition of NFPA 99

Blog Post created by jonhart Employee on Jun 27, 2017

While many health care facilities across the country are still adjusting to last year’s adoption of the 2012 edition of NFPA 99 by CMS, the code revision process at NFPA has continued. We are now only a short time away from the final approval and issuance of the 2018 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code. These changes may affect health care facilities that start new construction projects in jurisdictions with building codes that reference the 2018 edition. These changes may also come into play through the use of categorical waivers or when a newer edition is adopted by CMS.

 

Join me for a webinar detailing many of these changes on July 20 at 12:30 pm ET.

 

      I will discuss the most noteworthy changes that will be found in the 2018 edition. Topics discussed will include:

  • New language on risk assessments

  • New permissible material for medical gas piping

  • Reorganized electrical systems chapter

  • Revised medical gas storage requirements

  • New chapter on dental gas systems

  • Revised hyperbaric facility requirements
