Legal Requirements

The Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the inspection and testing of automatic sprinkler systems. OSHA also requires training for employees who are responsible for the inspection and testing of these systems. In addition, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has adopted a standard that also requires extensive training for personnel who are responsible for the inspection and testing of water-based fire protection systems. Failure to comply with NFPA standards may create liability for your employer.

This awareness Level training program is designed to meet only part of OSHA and NFPA training requirements. In order to inspect and test water-based fire protection systems, you will also need to attend a hands-on training program. In this Awareness Level program, you will gain knowledge that is necessary to inspect and test these systems. In the hands-on portion of the program, you will also learn the skills that are required to conduct proper inspections and tests.
