Firestop SOP for Healthcare
October 15th @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Standard Operating Practices (SOP) exist in healthcare facilities for emergency room care, the administration of anesthesia, and life-saving surgical procedures to name a few. SOP’s are put into place in many areas in healthcare to save people’s lives. And yet when it comes to firestopping, or passive fire protection, a life safety component designed to protect the very lives of the people whose lives were just saved, there often is no plan in place. This seminar will outline the benefits of having this most important life safety feature.
Learning Objectives are as follows:
Understanding the importance of having a standard operating practice (SOP) for firestopping, or passive fire protection and how to design or enhance one.
Understanding what firestopping is and why passive fire protection is such a critical component to life safety and code compliance.
Identifying the key elements to a balanced fire protection program in any barrier management program.
Recognizing areas for consideration when designing sustainability into a healthcare facility, or future-proofing.
