Construction Site Fire Safety Manager
Licensed Fire Safety Managers are required whenever a site safety manager/coordinator is required by the Department of Buildings Building code. The code states that owners shall designate a person to be the fire safety manager for the construction site. This person must possess a certificate of fitness as a construction site fire safety manager. The fire safety manager may be the site safety manager or site safety coordinator as required by the building code, except that a separate fire safety manager shall be designated for a building under construction when such building reaches a height of twenty stories or more than 250 feet, has a lot coverage of 200,000 square feet or greater, or as other prescribed by rule.
