  • Description

    The 2012 edition of NFPA 99 offers a risk-based approach for better occupant safety in health care environments. Benefit from the industry's best instruction on the Code recently adopted by CMS.

    The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has officially adopted the 2012 edition of NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code. NFPA®'s expert-led two-day training program explains what's different about the 2012 edition of NFPA 99 and how will it impact your work in all types of health care settings.

    Learn about NFPA 99 through two days of in-person training. Dramatic changes in the renamed NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code reflect today's environment of patient care where procedures are performed in a wide variety of locations -- requiring safety guidelines based on a risk-based framework to facilitate adoption and enforcement throughout an increasingly decentralized health care system.

    In this collaborative program, health care authorities and Code experts guide you through NFPA 99's revised content and complete reorganization, taking an in-depth look at how to conduct a risk-based analysis. Interactive training involves hands-on exercises and activities to give you a working knowledge of the Code.

    Upon completion you should be able to:

    • Discuss how the 2012 edition of NFPA 99 has been rewritten and reorganized to apply a risk-based approach to requirements
    • Correctly apply new requirements that consider operating rooms wet locations unless a risk assessment of the area determines otherwise
    • Understand and apply NFPA 99's added chapters on security, fire protection, and information technology
    • Overview the revised provisions for plumbing and HVAC systems
    • Work with the updated Chapter 5, Gas and Vacuum Systems
    • Comply with new rules concerning storage of compressed gas cylinders, including cylinder safety and cylinder operations including labeling
    • Discuss the electrical requirement for selective coordination
    • Review the updated requirements for gas equipment
    • Discuss the new maintenance requirements for gas and vacuum systems

    Jonathan Hart, Senior Fire Protection Engineer at NFPA® talks about NFPA 99 classroom training and how it relates to the CMS announcement.
