When an emergency situation happens inside a building, the occupants must be able to evacuate safely and efficiently. This interactive course on the topic of life safety teaches you about the International Building Code (IBC) and how it regulates exit systems. You will learn how to get people out of a building in an emergency and how people with physical disabilities gain access to services just like everyone else. You will also learn code requirements designed to protect people from building hazards. This course defines the three main parts of a means of egress system, discusses how to determine the required number of exits or exit access doorways based on occupant load, covers accessibility requirements and standards, and lists the code requirements that are designed to reduce the number of injuries from falls.
