- Service Summary View: The same useful "Service Summary" section found on inspection reports is now available to inspectors using SafetyScan ; the new view provides a quick overview of the device types and services performed of devices that have been inspected so far.
Technical Advantage: Latest inspection tools provide reliable front-line defense against emergencies
According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), in 2001 there were more than 85,000 nonresidential fires resulting in direct property loss estimated at over $2.4 billion. To mitigate the sizable risk, organizations such as the Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have long advocated a balanced approach. That is to say, rather than relying simply on fire detection (i.e. smoke alarms) or suppression (i.e. sprinklers and fire extinguishers), that builders and facility managers leverage both in coordination with each other.
As a sponsor of the 51st American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition August 3-6 in Chicago, Illinois, BuildingReports provider event goers with an early glimpse at healthcare facility compliance performance. The data and analysis are based on data from the inaugural Fire & Life Safety Inspection Benchmark Report.
