Life Safety Consulting

The purpose of life safety is to minimize the possible danger to life and property from various threats including fire and smoke. Life safety codes have long since been established to address various concerns relating to the construction, protection, and occupancy features of facilities and buildings. These codes identify the criterion necessary to minimize danger to life from the effects of fire, smoke, heat, and toxic gases. Egress issues, such as exiting patterns and egress designs, are also factor as they establish the guidelines intended to allow for the timely escape of a building’s occupants in the event of a fire and other dangerous situations. Other considerations essential to life safety, including the protective features and systems within a building and the activities necessary for maintaining such features and systems have also been taken into account within life safety codes.
