NFPA 241 is the Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations. 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 clearly establish responsibilities for all parties as well as discuss the means and methods for complying with the requirements of NFPA 241. TERPconsulting can develop, advise, or assist in the enforcement of a 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 Owner, but often it is delegated and managed by a contracted fire protection engineer. Even though all jurisdictions do not require of 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.
