The Firestop Contractors International Association will present a barrier management symposium to educate healthcare engineering professionals about fire resistant rated construction including all compartmentation components.
The free two-day symposium will cover how to build the reliability of fire rated barriers through design, installation, inspection & maintenance of effective compartmentation, fire resistance rated and smoke resistant barriers, specifically addressing the top two violations in healthcare facility audits by The Joint Commission: penetrations/joints and openings.
The first of three scheduled programs for the next year is set for Steamboat Springs, Co., Sept., 5-6, 2013, at the Colorado Association of Healthcare Engineers and Directors Autumn Seminar. The symposium was developed by the Firestop Contractors International Association, The Joint Commission, the American Society for Healthcare Engineering, and Underwriters Laboratories.
