Life Safety Design
Life safety system design is the process of designing the interior of a building to ensure that occupants are protected as much as possible, while being designed for safe and efficient evacuation.
Elements considered in life safety design include:
- Evacuation plans & building design (including fire escapes)
- Fire, heat, gas, and other alarms
- Fire suppression systems
- Emergency ventilation system controls
- Elevator override systems
- Backup power systems
Every precaution is taken during life safety design to ensure that occupant risk is mitigated as much as possible during any emergency. Having proper designs and systems in place saves lives, while mitigating the risks of liability for building owners.
