NFPA 241 Construction Fire Safety Plan (CFSP)

Per many local and state fire codes, NFPA 241 ensures construction sites are adequately protected against fire risks during the building process

TERP can help you understand about safeguarding construction, alteration, and demolition services — so you know how to provide a safer work site through compliance with NFPA 241: Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations.

As the Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations, an NFPA 241 plan is essential for ensuring construction sites are protected against fire risks throughout the building process, promoting safety for workers and the surrounding community. Per many local and state fire codes, a comprehensive NPFA 241 plan must be enforced whenever a building is undergoing construction, alteration, or demolition operations. The plan must establish responsibilities for all parties and discuss the means and methods for complying with the requirements of NFPA 241. The fire protection engineers and code consultants at TERPconsulting can develop, advise, or assist in enforcing an NFPA 241 plan.

An NFPA 241 plan will clearly define the responsibilities of the owner and the construction team. The overall master plan is the responsibility of the building owner, but often, it is delegated and managed by a contracted fire protection engineer like those at TERPconsulting. Even though all jurisdictions do not require a formal NFPA 241 plan, it is the best way to limit hazardous work practices, ensure all legal responsibilities are met, and avoid last-minute construction delays.
