Jan. 31: Committee Starts Work on Fire Code Inspection Gaps


The Fire Inspection and Prevention Initiative (FIPI) started work to address gaps in Fire Code inspections that were identified after explosions at two BC sawmills in 2012. The FIPI Steering Committee, which includes representatives from the BC Safety Authority, WorkSafeBC and industry stakeholders, will address inspectional and jurisdictional gaps related to Fire Code compliance and fire inspections of commercial facilities, particularly those with the potential for combustible dust accumulation.
