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.
