Electrical workers still confused by the requirements in the NFPA 5000 Building Construction and Safety Code released last year will have a chance to familiarize themselves with it at this year’s NFPA World Safety Conference & Exposition in Dallas. The two-day seminar, held May 16 and 17, will be a part of the conference’s pre-conference proceedings. The conference itself runs May 18 – 21.
The seminar will explain how the code was developed through an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited consensus process, and how to apply it. Details will include concepts of egress and accessibility, performance-based design options, fire-protection systems and equipment, classification of occupancies, hazards of content, and construction types and materials.
NFPA 5000 is the first building code approved by ANSI. It contains provisions for every aspect of the design and construction of buildings and structures, as well as the design of integrated building systems for health and safety.
