AIHA to Host Two New Life Safety TeleWebs
The American Industrial Hygiene Association yesterday announced its plans to host two new TeleWebs that deal with building egress and refuge in the event of a fire or similar emergency. Registrants can choose to participate in either or both of the TeleWebs, depending on their familiarity with the subject.
In the first part--titled “Application of Life Safety Engineering Principles Part 1,” scheduled Dec. 3, 2007, 2–4:30 p.m. ET--participants will learn basic principles of life safety for an occupied environment. These principles are based on the Life Safety Code published by the National Fire Protection Association and will focus on the life safety assessment process, occupancy classification, and egress calculations. Numerous case studies of fires will be presented to reinforce lecture concepts.
The second part of the course--“Application of Life Safety Engineering Principles Part 2,” scheduled Dec. 10, 2007, 2–4:30 p.m. ET--will focus on travel distance requirements, exit signs, compartmentation features, fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, and fire behavior. Case studies of fires will also be presented to reinforce concepts.
Participants need Internet access and a telephone, or just a phone, to be part of these live educational events. In addition, an archive copy of the TeleWeb will be available on CD for purchase.
