Title: Inspecting & Maintaining Swinging Egress & Fire Doors

NFPA 101, Life Safety Code (2012 edition) requires certain swinging doors to be annually inspected and tested to ensure they function as intended by the Code. NFPA 101 also requires swinging fire doors to be annually inspected and tested in accordance with NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives (2010 edition), and NFPA 105, Standard for Smoke Door Assemblies and Other Protectives (2010 edition). Facilities management personnel can be trained to perform these safety inspections in-house, as well as the routine and preventative maintenance work needed to keep doors in working condition.
Establishing a tier-based priority system for the on-going monitoring and maintenance of swinging doors is essential to an effective door maintenance program.
This education session explains the safety inspection and testing requirements of NFPA 101 and NFPA 80, in conjunction with door usage types and door maintenance priority levels. Participants will be provided examples of non-compliant and compliant fire door features identified during a fire door inspection. Handouts include sample inspection checklists and forms.

"Thank you for all the great help and advice you provided, during our preparation for Joint Commission. As the “Environment of Care” and “Life Safety” surveyors stated, “it is very, very rare that a hospital does not receive at least one citation on its documentation”.

Not only did you help us achieve a perfect review on our documentation, but you also helped us save numerous dollars in repair and replacement costs. Our estimated cost savings was well over $100,000 dollars.

Although we had two other firms conduct pre-Joint Commission inspections, they were not as thorough, nor did they provide any follow up services. Prior to the survey, your updates from other healthcare organizations, kept us abreast of changes and varying Joint Commission targets. During the survey, your articles and guidance on responses to the Joint Commission helped us immeasurably.

Thank you again for all your help."
