Establish compliance in your health care facility
An important criterion for a first-class property environment is the establishment of risk management and loss prevention programs to ensure the reliability of fire and life safety systems. Barrier management programs (BMPs) are one such risk management practice that entails identifying all types of fire-rated assemblies, including the types of penetrations and the activities that cause them to become breached.
This program is intended to provide a road map of best practices that can be utilized to assist the commissioning of new projects and maintaining these barriers post-construction. Maintenance of all rated and non-rated barrier construction must be ongoing to keep a health care facility safe and compliant with national, state and local standards. Interested parties can work with members of the Specified Technologies Inc. (STI) organization to establish the criteria for compliance in their facility.
The outcome of the collaboration is the BMP portal, a digital gateway into the information needed to stay compliant through policies, procedures, training and firestop systems. All members involved in the project can be invited to have access to the BMP, where they can view the portal and export any relevant documents needed for their work.
BMP and Firestop Locator work hand-in-hand. For more information, health care facilities professionals should visit its website. STI
GAME, SET, LATCH
The Universal Latch Sensor attaches easily to an existing latch and door frame to offer a low-impact security and functionality upgrade to door-latch systems. The device uses a simple magnet to detect a latch’s status, triggering a security alert or turning on indicator lights to illuminate small spaces when a latch is open. Unlike other door monitoring systems, this system monitors the latch itself, providing a more accurate assessment of the open or locked status of a door. Southco
