  • The New Life Safety Code: How to Prepare in Advance

    The Life Safety Code® has not been officially revamped since 2000. The new 2012 Life Safety Code has been reviewed, improved, and awaits implementation-at which point all facilities will have to make sure they are up to speed and in compliance with the new code.

    Life Safety expert Brad Keyes has broken down the expected improvements and updates to the code in an easy-to-digest format to help you review your organization for compliance and ensure you are ready for immediate action when the new code is approved. Using tools, illustrations, and content analysis, Keyes has delved into the changes you need to be aware of before the 2012 code is implemented-many of which are now best practices and worth updating even before the code is officially approved.

  • A comparison to existing regulatory requirements
