Major changes and an expanded scope make the 2018 edition of NFPA 101®: Life Safety Code® essential in any occupancy -- from assembly to health care, industrial, and residential.

As the built environment and risks evolve, so do the challenges to protect people from fire and related hazards. NFPA®'s Life Safety Code is the most widely used source for strategies for occupant safety throughout the life of a building. Vital for architects, engineers, building owners and building managers, hospital administrators, and AHJs, NFPA 101 covers it all: Egress, sprinklers, alarms, emergency lighting, smoke barriers, special hazard protection, and much more.< p> For the 2018 edition, the scope of NFPA 101 is expanded to include hazardous materials emergencies, injuries from falls, and emergency communications.

The Code provides a flexible approach that adapts to nontraditional use of buildings; innovative designs; and new technologies, materials, and construction practices. It addresses life safety in both new and existing structures. Significant changes for the 2018 edition include:

  • New requirements for hazardous materials protection of other than fire-related hazards (Chapter 8)
  • A new reference to NFPA 4 for integrated fire protection and life safety system testing, and new provisions for risk analyses for mass notification systems (Chapter 9)
  • Animal housing facilities added as special structures (Chapter 11)
  • Added requirements for carbon-monoxide detection in new assembly occupancies and new residential board and care occupancies (Chapters 12 and 32)
  • Added criteria for door locking to prevent unwanted entry in educational, day care, and business occupancies (Chapters 14-17, 38, and 39)
  • A mandatory sprinkler requirement for all but very small new educational occupancies (Chapter 14)
  • New provisions that permit health care and ambulatory health care smoke compartments up to 40,000 ft2 (3720 m2) in area (Chapters 18 and 19)
  • Added requirements for bathtub and shower grab bars, which are then referenced by numerous occupancy chapters (Chapter 24)
  • Added requirements for attic protection requirements that impact certain new hotels and dormitories and apartment buildings (Chapters 28 and 30)
  • A new reference to NFPA 99 for medical gases in business occupancies (Chapters 38 and 39)
  • A new Annex C that offers guidance on several NFPA® hazardous materials standards to assist users with the new hazardous materials protection requirements

Be sure your knowledge is up-to-date and your facilities meet code. Base your decisions on the 2018 edition of NFPA 101 and tackle safety challenges effectively. (Softbound, Approx. 520 pp., 2018)
