LEESBURG, Va. — The American Wood Council (AWC) has released a new app to help make construction site fire safety inspections more accessible and safe. The Construction Fire Safety Checklist, or CFS Checklist, contains a daily fire inspection checklist that meets the requirements of the 2021 International Fire Code and allows site safety directors to complete the checklist as they walk through their daily inspection. The app’s development is the result of feedback AWC and the Construction Fire Safety Coalition (CFSC) received from the fire service, building inspectors, site safety directors, developers and construction managers across the nation. The checklist allows inspectors to reduce the frequency and severity of construction fires through a code compliant questionnaire that identifies potential site safety risks. …Once completed, the report can be exported as a PDF to be saved and shared with the relevant fire and building officials.
