Buildings under construction

Many large and costly fires involving buildings under construction underscore the need for more widespread use of NFPA 241 to address a range of related hazards.

Multiple large-scale fires have occurred at construction sites in 2017, resulting in multi-millions dollar losses - both in direct property damage and losses beyond the structure of origin. Many, if not all, of these incidents could have been prevented with the safeguards included in NFPA 241, Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration and Demolition Operations.
