Door Inspection and Maintenance WorkshopSOLD OUT

With so many changes in the way the authorities having jurisdiction are looking at doors and door maintenance programs, this session is essential for in-house technicians. The codes do not require special training to inspect or maintain facility doors; this program will ensure you are in compliance when surveyed and that you are well versed in the door maintenance program when discussing it with surveyors.

Attendees will receive a copy of ASHE’s Inspecting and Maintaining Swinging Doors Handbook: A How-to Guide to Egress and Fire Door Safety, a book written specifically for health care facilities.

  • Identify the regulations behind swinging doors and how they apply
  • Customize a program to your facility to provide continuous door maintenance
  • Apply techniques to properly check and maintain doors
  • Practice survey techniques to identify the deficiencies often cited by surveyors
