Inspections

  • Life Safety and other safety concerns exist in many areas within a Hospital facility.
  • Visual inspections of areas both above and below the acoustical tile ceiling by staff trained to identify deficiencies must be completed periodically.
  • Another set of eyes has proven invaluable, time and time again.
  • SHS’s trained staff will spot deficiencies and log, locate and photo document per SHS standards.
  • Findings are reported in a clear, easy to follow format helping to assure effective documentation and follow through.

Surveys

  • Our survey processes identify all opportunities for improvement in Life Safety or EOC.
  • We then connect the dots between the SOC, the drawings and the actual built environment to provide a comprehensive view of the facility’s Life Safety compliance status.

  • We educate the hospital staff for understanding of the “why” of the codes and standards to emplace sustainable change.
