DEOHS Continuing Education Announcement

2014 Webinar Series

Hazardous Materials Requirements
of the International Codes
for Fire Marshals, Plan Reviewers and Inspectors

Fire, building, mechanical, and electrical codes provide minimum life safety requirements. For buildings with hazardous materials, these codes are comprehensive and complicated and require specific technical training for successful implementation. The purpose of this series of webinars is to help prepare code professionals to review plans and inspect facilities for compliance with the hazardous materials provisions of the fire, building, mechanical, and electrical codes.


This webinar series includes 10 sessions. The first hour, “Boot Camp,” is designed for new inspectors, fire marshals, and plan reviewers to help them understand items such as the Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS), spill control and secondary containment, exhaust ventilation, and electrical classification of hazardous locations. The second hour, “Special Topics,” is designed for experienced professionals covering requirements for industrial ovens, ammonia refrigeration, and other equipment and processes. Specific topics for each series are listed below. Participants may register for either or both series.

  1. These codes cannot provide much safety against Fire, building, mechanical, and electrical mishaps. One has to have good deal of knowledge about health and safety measures.
