This one-hour webinar will share strategic design concepts found within NFPA 99-2012: Health Care Facilities Code. Participants will become familiar with the current terminology while understanding how to navigate the document. The presenter will visit key differences between the NFPA 99 1999 and 2012 editions. New technologies, including the use of flameless axially swaged fittings, will be evaluated for their role within life support systems. This session will enable participants to implement new design concepts to reduce costs and minimize system disruption, avoid “hot work” where it is no longer effective, and better understand the latest requirements to begin updating medical gas system standards. Participants from all levels and backgrounds are sure to walk away with a new appreciation for these critical systems.
