The NFPA 101 Egress, Exits, and Emergency Lighting webinar reviews occupant safety in buildings from smoke, heat and other hazards created during a fire. This training opportunity is based on NFPA 101 ‘Life Safety Code’ and the International Building Code (IBC).
The webinar will provide an overview of the requirements for egress, exits, and emergency lighting, including acceptable means of egress for occupants to safely exit a building, requirements for illumination, and rules for markings and signage to guide occupants to the exits. Requirements for warehousing, commercial and retail occupancies will be given specific emphasis.
After completion of the webinar, attendees will be able to understand the requirements of NFPA 101 and IBC related to egress, exiting and emergency lights, as well as explain how to determine types of egress and emergency lighting. In addition, participants will learn the rules of egress, exits and emergency lights in warehousing, commercial and retail facilities.
