For 2009 the Joint Commission added a Life Safety Management chapter to its standards. Requirements regarding maintenance of life safety equipment and systems are still part of the Environment of Care chapter. The new chapter addresses compliance with the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101) and ILSMs. Although the functional requirements have not changed significantly, there are major changes in scoring that affect how you manage your work. For example, there is no longer a scoring advantage to using a Building Maintenance Plan (BMP). We can review your management plans, documentation, and policies to make sure they match the new Joint Commission approach in a cost-effective manner.
