Two Day – Certificate Program - June 27 & 28
Inspecting and Maintaining
Swinging Egress and Fire Door Assemblies
Inspecting and maintaining swinging doors in healthcare facilities can be a seemingly never-ending task. Some doors are subject to wear and tear from constant daily use. Latching hardware, closing devices, and hinges wear out more quickly on these doors, making the doors unreliable in emergency situations. Maintaining and repairing swinging fire doors needs to comply with applicable life safety and fire codes. Understanding the type of work permitted to be performed on fire-rated doors is essential to properly maintaining swinging doors. The Joint Commission (TJC) periodic site surveys include verifying door assemblies comply with the requirements of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Newer editions of this Standard (as referenced by NFPA 101 – 2012 edition) will require annual door inspections be with records maintained on site for review by the AHJ.
This two-day course covers requirements for maintaining swinging egress and fire doors in your facility. Attendees will learn how to perform NFPA 80’s safety inspections of swinging fire doors and NFPA 101’s safety inspections for egress and fire doors. Each attendee receives handouts and checklists they can put to use immediately in your facility.
When: June 27 & 28
Where: Christiana Care Hospital – Wilmington Campus
