NFPA 241 Construction Fire Safety Event

Last month at Florian Hall on the topic of Construction Fire Safety, Code Red Consultants, Boston Fire Department, Boston ISD, the AGC, and an expert panel hosted 350 leaders within the design build industry. With the recent adoption of the new Massachusetts Fire Prevention Code and its reference to NFPA 241, general contractors and developers needed to understand their responsibility associated with construction fire safety. The program outlined the scoping provisions associated with these requirements, while providing attendees a clear understanding as to role of the newly introduced Fire Prevention Program Manager. Code Red Consultants outlined the general contents of a formal Construction Safety Program and explained how it is different, yet supplemented by a fire protection Impairment Plan. Attendees learned how to create a framework of relevant sections and appendices depending on the complexity of their next renovation or new construction project. Lastly, BFD discussed common challenges faced on construction sites and potential mitigation when strict code compliance is unavoidable. This presentation set out to help educate the busy project manager on some best practices in the most difficult aspect of construction site fire safety; the process of implementation. Contact Pete Harrod at Code Red Consultants if your team is interested in a customized learning opportunity on this topic. We will be happy to discuss the ramifications of the enforcement of NFPA 241 on your team (508-581-7746;
