We’re in the Peace of Mind Business.
We keep hospitals safe so your teams can focus on giving the best care possible. From above-ceiling remediation to drawings & inspections, our processes connect the dots to provide a comprehensive view of the facility’s Life Safety compliance status.
All estimates are free and flexible according to materials and scheduling.
The space between the acoustical tile ceiling and the deck above is a world seldom seen but full of compliance pitfalls. From unsealed or improperly sealed penetrations in smoke and fire barriers to evidence of chronic leaks, our Above Ceiling Experts will locate, identify and help resolve these issues. Our thoroughly trained UL Rated Systems Installers ensure proper fire-stopping; including wall stenciling, fire-rated joint assemblies, perimeter fire containment and smoke and fire rated penetrations.
The Joint Commission has now clarified the requirements for Statement of Conditions drawings. With up to 15 issues to be displayed, few current drawings satisfy these requirements. Accurate Life Safety drawings are an essential starting point for the Life Safety Management program. SHS updates drawings to meet or exceed requirements.
EDUCATION & ONLINE TRAINING
At SHS, our goal is to affect lasting improvement at our client hospitals. We provide free webinars in support of our peers in Healthcare Facilities Management as well as customized, on-site education for individuals or groups where need has been identified. With Education often cut from budgets, SHS training can fill in the gaps.
Whether a Custom Survey or full Mock Survey is desired, SHS’s survey process simplifies the assessment of current conditions. Our reports make clear what is in place and what is needed. Where shortfalls occur, SHS can provide Policies and Procedures, Recommendations and Education. An SHS survey will provide a solid understanding of where the organization is today, and what needs to be done to be fully compliant and safe.
SHS offers pre-construction consultation to insure the proper firestop systems are incorporated into the project’s life safety plans from initiation. This reduces overall liability exposure, saves money and streamlines the documentation process. We can provide all of the submittals, certifications, identification tags and installation logs in a single package upon project completion.
We only work with the best materials available and provide a 1 year guarantee on all labor. We never compromise quality for time and give hospitals realistic schedules. We strive for honest customer service, so contracts are only paid in full when the finished work is to your complete satisfaction.
40 YEARS OF RENOWNED EXPERIENCE
For the duration of his career, Safe Hospital Services founder Tom Zahorsky was asked by former bosses and associates to assess their facilities for Life Safety and Environment of Care compliance. With over 100 fire-stop projects now completed, and only one improperly sealed penetration found on a Joint Commission survey, SHS has arguably the best track record in the industry. It is not our desire to be the biggest fire-stopping and Hospital Life Safety consulting firm in the country, just the best. We work hard and go the extra mile to seal walls completely no matter how difficult that may be. Our staff works to assure a safe facility, thus assuring a compliant facility in the process.
