The National Fire Protection Association has a launched a new revision cycle for a consensus product begun in 1968 — Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations. From the project prospectus:
This standard shall apply to structures in the course of construction, alteration, or demolition, including those in underground locations. A.1.1 General requirements applying to construction and demolition are contained in Chapter 1 and Chapters 3 through 7; specific requirements for construction and alteration activities are found in Chapter 8; those requirements specific to roofing operations are covered in Chapter 9; those requirements specific to demolition activities are covered in Chapter 10; and specific requirements for activities in underground locations are contained in Chapter 11.
Public input is due June 26, 2019.
We encourage you to submit public input to NFPA directly. You will need to set up a (free) NFPA TerraView account (CLICK HERE). We are happy to discuss this standard any day during our 11 AM Eastern time teleconference. We also host a monthly teleconference covering the parts of fire safety documents of all consensus product developers that determine the safety and sustainability of education facilities . See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting; open to everyone. Finally, we encourage our colleagues — especially those in the San Antonio Texas region — to attend the NFPA Conference & Expo, June 17-20. CLICK HERE for registration guidance.
