With construction fires making front page news recently, it is important to understand the associated requirements that result in 780 CMR scoping NFPA 241, Safeguarding Construction. Alteration, and Demolition Operations. Many jurisdictions have come to expect this documentation to be provided as a condition of building permit and use the document as a baseline for site fire safety inspections. Every jurisdiction is different and with that come different expectations for construction fire safety. This program will outline the contents of a Construction Fire Safety Plan and provide insight in to what the AHJ is likely looking for in a Construction Fire Safety Plan as well as the implementation of the plan.
