Life Safety: NFP 99 Risk Assessment
This risk assessment has been developed to comply with the NFPA 99 (2012 Edition) risk-based process. NFPA 99 (2012) requires facilities to be designed to meet system risk categories 1 through 4 as described in the code. Based on the facility’s completed risk assessment, the facility should follow the applicable requirements of the related chapters. Chapters 5 and 6 are divided into risk category requirements on either New or Existing and instruct facilities of the requirements. Chapters 7 and 8 have not been adopted by CMS. No actions are needed for Chapters 7 and 8. Chapters 9, 10 and 11 require a risk assessment but do not specify different levels of systems or types of equipment based on the risk assessment. The requirements of Chapters 9, 10 and 11 apply to all systems and equipment.
