Life Safety Code Compliance with CE-Tech
Understanding and adhering to the Life Safety Code (from the National Fire Protection Association or NFPA 101) is an essential component of healthcare facility management. At CE-Tech, we are committed to helping facilities navigate the complexities of life safety code compliance, ensuring the safety and security of all individuals within their care, especially those unable to protect themselves.
What is Life Safety Code Compliance?
Life Safety Code compliance is a set of industry standards developed by the National Fire Protection Association. The code’s primary objective is to provide a level of safety and protection from fire and hazards for all individuals. Compliance with these codes is required by numerous bodies, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), state authorities, city or county authorities and various regulatory agencies.
