Life Safety Consulting Expect The Unexpected With A Mock Survey - Blog Image

As we continue to move through the year, your facility’s Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) survey may be coming up soon. And although they happen within an expected few weeks, they are typically unannounced and this can create a stressful environment. There always seems to be something that doesn’t work the way it was designed. To make a stressful situation even more stressful, there may be hidden issues you are unaware of. If the AHJ finds them first it can result in a hefty fine or even a loss of accreditation. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a Life Safety Consultant perform a life safety mock survey to help you be prepared.


Life Safety Consulting Services

A Life Safety Consultant is an expert on the Fire and Life Safety Code, and will help you know where to focus your fire and life safety protection inspection and repairs. Life safety consulting services will help ensure that your facility is in compliance with all the updated standards before your Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) inspections.  


Physical Inspection

Life Safety Consultants will come into your facility and perform a life safety survey to discover the potential fire and life safety issues that could result in the following: penalties, fees, or even a loss of accreditation. They will create a mock survey to measure your facility’s strengths and weaknesses. Having a physical building inspection helps prove that the Authority Having Jurisdiction standards and code requirements are being met and enforced.


Documentation Review

A Life Safety Consultant will thoroughly review your documentation personalized to your specific AHJ and their requirements. They will make sure that you have all the proper documentation ready and available for your upcoming Authority Having Jurisdiction inspection. Having the proper documentation ready and available is important to your inspection and will help prove to your AHJ you are properly prepared.

Not only will a Life Safety Consultant review your facility's documentation, but they can help you have a better understand of what the code’s standards say, and which requirements have been adopted in your area. Once the mock survey has been completed, you’ll know exactly what needs to be repaired in order to be ready for a successful Joint Commission survey.


Whether you have your Joint Commission, CMS, or any other accrediting agency’s life safety survey soon or just need a little extra help on certain issues that need to be addressed, now is the perfect time to prepare by having a life safety mock survey.
