NFPA 101, Life Safety Code Newest Addition to NFPA LiNK Digital Reference Tool
With December upon us, NFPA is pleased to announce the addition of the 2021 edition of NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®, to NFPA LiNK™, the Association’s new information delivery platform that will include all NFPA codes and standards, supplementary content, and visual aids for building, electrical, and life safety professionals and practitioners.
NFPA 101 now joins the four most recent editions of NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), the most widely used code in the United States, and NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace® on the platform.
NFPA 101 is the most widely used source for strategies to protect people based on building construction, protection, and occupancy features that minimize the effects of fire and related hazards. NFPA 101 is unique in its field as it’s the only document that covers life safety in both new and existing structures.
NFPA LiNK has been designed to provide users with instant access to resources pertinent to their work and requirements for safe work practices that reduce a worker’s exposure to fire, electrical, and other hazards. It can be accessed via mobile devices, tablets, laptops, or other preferred device, and its key functions and features make it easier to find, bookmark, organize, and share information anytime and anywhere. It will become a “living library” for users that offers:
- The ability to work alongside the codes by adding personal notes, assigning colors, and saving to custom collections for quick and easy reference
- A broader understanding of code requirements through access to expert commentary, visual aids, and helpful resources
- Collaboration features to share code sections, work across teams, and ensure everyone knows what is required
- Navigation tools that enable users to quickly locate the information they need based on the situations they encounter
