Fire, building, mechanical, and electrical codes provide minimum life safety requirements. For buildings with hazardous materials, these codes are comprehensive and complicated and require specific technical training for successful implementation. The purpose of this series of webinars is to help prepare code professionals to review plans and inspect facilities for compliance with the hazardous materials provisions of the fire, building, mechanical, and electrical codes.

Course Objectives
At the completion of this webinar series participants should be able to:

  • Understand hazardous materials requirements of fire, building, mechanical and electrical codes.
  • Improve the quality of construction plan reviews and building inspections related to hazardous materials.
  • Review inspection checklists using code citations and other tools to identify hazardous materials.
  • Discuss hazardous materials and code requirements associated with special equipment, processes, and other systems.
