ASSE A1264.1-2017

Safety Requirements for Workplace Walking/Working Surfaces and Their Access; Workplace Floor, Wall and Roof Openings; Stairs and Guardrails Systems

Published by: 2017-01-09 / 2017-01-09 / 40 pages
ASSE A1264.1-2017 sets forth safety requirements in industrial and workplace situations for protecting persons in areas/places where danger exists of persons or objects falling from elevated walking and work surfaces such as floor, roof or wall openings, platforms, runways, ramps, fixed stairs or roofs in normal, temporary and emergency conditions.

The scope of this document has application to more than industrial settings. It applies also to workplace settings used and occupied mainly by workers. For example, the document applies to stage
areas in theaters as used by stage hands and performers (i.e., workers).

Excluded from this standard are: private residences; escalators; moving walks; floor openings occupied by elevators, manlifts, dumbwaiters, conveyors, machinery, containers; the loading and unloading
areas of truck, railroad and marine docks; self-propelled motorized mobile equipment; mobile ladder stands and mobile work platforms; scaffolds used in the construction, alteration, demolition and maintenance of buildings and structures; ladders and construction work areas; and marina and floating tank ladders.

Recognizing that the special safety requirements necessary for assembly occupancies
may not be adequately covered by other codes or standards, this standard may provide the minimum safety performance requirements to protect the occupants. See ANSI/ASSE A10.18, Safety Requirements for Temporary Floors, Holes, Wall Openings, Stairways and Other Unprotected Edges in Construction and Demolition Operations.

ASSE (Plumbing) Series 15000

Professional Qualifications Standard for the Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems (ASSE/IAPMO/ANSI Series 15000)

Published by: American Society of Sanitary Engineering / 2015-04-01 / 20 pages
ASSE/IAPMO/ANSI Series 15000 was developed to establish a level of competency for the inspection, testing and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems beyond the requirements of NFPA Standard 25.

The Series 15000 provides minimum qualification criteria and applies to a qualified individual who provides inspection, testing, and maintenance for water-based fire protection systems in compliance with installation, inspection, testing and maintenance standards. This individual will be referred to as “field technician” in this standard.

The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum qualification criteria as defined by the scope.

This standard applies to field technicians only. This standard does not apply to a person who is performing an engineering evaluation.
