About the Instructor
Danny Chisholm began his career in the emergency power industry in 1998 and became a full-time instructor in 2003. Danny currently serves as an alternate for the National Fire Protection Association’s Technical Committees responsible for NFPA 110, Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems, NFPA 111, Stored Electrical Energy Emergency and Standby Power Systems, and the Electrical Section of NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code.
Several standards have something to say about maintenance and testing of EPSSs; however, all the standards refer to NFPA 110, Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems, for the “final word.”
Make sure you follow NFPA and OSHA requirements for training and safety of personnel, including specific PPE recommendations.
Each component of the EPSS (batteries, cooling, fuel, etc) require specific tasks be performed at certain intervals.
Performing a visual inspection of your EPSS on a weekly basis is a MUST. Use MGI’s weekly inspection checklist to discover issues before the next generator run.
Monthly and triennial testing are essential to extending the life of your EPSS and uncover underperforming items before the next emergency. Also, documentation is REQUIRED for AHJ compliance.
BONUS: Health Care
