Apply NFPA 99 to maximize safety in all types of health care facilities. NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities fosters fire safety and fire protection with rules for the safe application of electrical systems, gas and vacuum systems, and environmental systems, along with materials and emergency management practices. The 2005 edition has been completely updated to reflect recent developments in medical equipment and processes as well as new methods to mitigate fire, explosion, and electrical hazards. Among the new and revised requirements that provide increased protection to patients and staff are: Changes to the emergency management chapter provide better correlation with NFPA 1600®: Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs Extracted text from NFPA 110: Emergency and Standby Power Systems presents specific guidance in the chapter on electrical systems Two new pipe joining methods in the chapter on gas and vacuum systems reduce the possibility of leaks and eliminate a potential fire danger or loss of system use. Additional restrictions on types of fabric, clothing, and materials that can be used in hyperbaric chambers improve safety. Write your own prescription for safety.
