Life Safety Consulting Know Where To Focus For Your 2022 Inspections Blog Image

As we continue to head towards the end of the year, now is the time to plan for your 2022 Barrier Management inspections. Unfortunately, documentation requirements can be complex and often misunderstood, and the code adoptions will vary from one Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to another. This makes it difficult to know whether your facility is in compliance with the code’s standards. Not to mention, your facility’s AHJ survey may be coming up soon.

An AHJ inspector might give you an estimated time of when you can expect them, but they are usually unannounced and this can create a stressful environment. Therefore, Life Safety Consulting can help you know where to focus your attention for your 2022 inspections and to be prepared for your AHJ survey.


Prepare For Your Facility’s 2022 Inspections with Fire and Life Safety Consulting

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have developed these life safety codes to protect people’s lives based on the building’s construction, protection, and occupancy features.

A Life Safety Consultant is knowledgeable of the life safety codes, and can help ensure that your facility will meet all of the code’s standards. They will review your facility’s life safety documentation as well as create a mock survey to measure your facility’s strengths and weaknesses. A life safety consultant will physically inspect all of the life safety aspects of your facility as thoroughly as an AHJ surveyor.


Documentation Review

Life Safety Consultants are up-to-date with the Life Safety Code and will help you to prepare your facility for your Authority Having Jurisdiction survey. Whether it’s the Joint Commission, CMS, or any other accrediting agency, A Life Safety Consultant will thoroughly review your documentation personalized to your specific AHJ and their requirements. They can help you understand what the code’s standards say, and which requirements have been adopted in your area.

An LSS Life Safety Consultant will tour the facility to perform a mock survey and inspect each of your facility’s fire and life safety systems. They will help you find hidden deficiencies to help ensure your facility is in compliance with the required codes.

Having a physical building inspection helps prove that the AHJ standards and code requirements are being met and enforced.
