Preventing Undesirable Incidents
Our barrier management programs are all-encompassing and will help you assess, understand, and develop your own barrier management program to reduce risk and achieve operational success.
Healthcare organizations are designed, constructed and maintained to minimize the possibility of a fire emergency requiring the evacuation of occupants. Fire and smoke barriers are the key components in the total concept life safety approach. Our unique barrier management programs have been developed with a goal of reducing risk through prevention and are tailored for each client and facility. Our certified and experienced fire door inspectors will perform a thorough inspection of your rated doors and provide you with a full color report generated from our comprehensive software solution. If your rated door requires re-labeling or recertification, our trusted partners can provide a cost-effective seemless solution.

Our Barrier Management Programs
As of July 5, 2016, all health care facilities must update their fire protection guidelines to improve protections for all Medicare beneficiaries from fire. This new guideline applies to hospitals, long-term care (LTC) facilities, critical access hospitals (CAHs), inpatient hospice facilities, programs for all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE), religious non-medical health care institutions (RNHCI), ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), and intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF-IID).
This new rule adopts updated provisions of the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (LSC), as well as provisions of the NFPA’s 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code.
The provisions in this final rule cover construction, protection, and operational features designed to provide safety for Medicare beneficiaries from fire, smoke, and panic.
