Fire fighting is a challenging profession. Make sure your team is up to the task and keep them safe on the job with the 2013 NFPA 1582.

To help fire departments ensure that personnel are medically capable of performing their required duties, the 2013 NFPA 1582 incorporates current research and knowledge to present the latest provisions for a comprehensive occupational medical program. The Standard provides separate chapters for the medical evaluation of candidates/prospective employees and for the occupational medical and fitness evaluations for fire department members. Requirements are equated against the essential job tasks based on several NFPA® Professional Qualification Standards and apply to career, volunteer, private, industrial, governmental, and military fire departments.

Update to the 2013 NFPA 1582: Standard on Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program for Fire Departments to keep pace with recent developments in medical technologies and treatments.

Due to changing technologies to treat many of the medical conditions that people are being treated for today, what was once a condition that would preclude people from joining a fire department or being forced to retire due to a specific medical condition, might not be the case today. Accordingly, some of the most important changes to 2013 NFPA 1582 are addressed in both the chapter for candidates, Chapter 6, and the chapter for members, Chapter 9, as well as an updating of Annex C.2 which is the Annual Fitness Evaluation from the Fire Service Management Wellness-Fitness Initiative. The significant changes involve prosthetics, diabetes, and reproductive health.

Increase job performance and reduce occupational injuries and illnesses.

The new 2013 NFPA 1582 is an essential working tool for fire departments and fire department physicians, or those medical professionals that are providing physicals to fire department candidates and members. (Softbound, 92 pp., 2013)
