The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA©) has announced that in the coming months roughly twenty five percent of the nearly 300 NFPA© codes and standards will be revised.
Construction businesses should become aware of these revisions as they
happen, so that they can feel confident they are in compliance.
Even a minor code change can have a major impact on safety. Further, even
a seemingly small oversight or error can have the potential to cause fines,
project delays, or re-do’s.
One way to always be current on codes and standards and to protect yourself,
your business and your clients, is to subscribe to the National Fire Codes©
Subscription Service in one of various formats. This can be accomplished
by going to the NFPA© website.
