Keeping Your Business Compliant With NFPA Codes & Standards
Keeping Your business Compliant With NFPA Codes & Standards
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) develops, publishes and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks.
Compliance with NFPA codes and standards helps protect lives and property from fire and other hazards. Many state and local jurisdictions have adopted NFPA codes as their own, making code compliance mandatory for businesses operating in those jurisdictions.

There are a number of ways to ensure your business is compliant with NFPA codes and standards, including:
1. Familiarize yourself with the applicable codes and standards.

3. Train your employees on code requirements relevant to their job duties.
4. Have a qualified professional review your operations for compliance with NFPA codes and standards.
