Medical Gas Alarm Panels

by Brad Keyes, CHSP, on May 29, 2019 1:00:25 AM

Q: Is it a requirement to keep access to the medical gas alarm panel clear in a similar manner that access to medical gas shutoff valves must remain clear? These alarm panels seem to always be mounted in a crowded area.

A: I don’t think so. I do not see any language in NFPA 99-2012 that requires any clearance around area alarm panels or even master alarm panels. But check with your accreditation organization, and your state and local authorities to see if they have more restrictive requirements.
