I’m putting the finishing touches on my lunch and learn presentation for this Thursday, September 29th (1 PM Eastern). If you work with health care facilities in any capacity, this virtual session will help keep you up to date on some of the code requirements specific to these occupancies. I’m presenting the class for the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE), but it is open to anyone who would like to attend. Here is some more info:
The model codes used in the U.S. include several requirements that are specific to health care facilities, and with new editions of the codes introduced every three years, it can be difficult to keep up with the mandates of the adopted codes and referenced standards. Whether it’s corridor doors leading to patient rooms, double egress pairs in smoke barriers, or controlled egress locks to deter elopement, having an understanding of these code requirements is crucial to ensuring that a health care facility’s doors are code-compliant. This lunch and learn will cover some of these areas of the codes and standards that affect health care facilities, with time for Q&A, and additional resources provided to refer to after the session.
