Correctly determine an equivalency using the 2016 edition of NFPA 101A: Guide on Alternative Approaches to Life Safety.

As a facility manager, inspector, or Code enforcer, having the latest edition of NFPA 101A keeps you in-the-know about how to determine an equivalency -- or to evaluate that it has an adequate level of life safety. An essential companion to the 2015 NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code®, the 2016 edition of NFPA 101A: Guide on Alternative Approaches to Life Safety facilitates an equivalency request using the numerically based fire safety evaluation systems (FSESs).

Mandatory values in each FSES reflect the requirements in the 2015 NFPA 101. NFPA 101A provides Code compliant FSESs for a wide range of occupancy types, including:

  • Health care
  • Residential board and care
  • Detention and correctional
  • Business
  • Educational

Each chapter presents a different system independent of the others. NFPA 101A also contains timesaving forms for recording building and life safety features, related worksheets, and other tools involved in a formalized method for presenting an equivalency request to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). (Softbound, Approx. 89 pp., 2016)
