EPSS Maintenance, Testing, and Compliance Manual with Code Update Video
There are 170+ emergency power supply system (EPSS) requirements found in the National Fire Protection Association, OSHA, CMS, DNV, and The Joint Commission codes and standards. Motor and Generator Institute (MGI) makes compliance with those requirements simple by providing the necessary tools and resources. With the EPSS Manual, owners and facility management professionals can:
- Combine requirements from NFPA, OSHA, CMS (health care only), and the generator manufacturer, to develop comprehensive maintenance, operation, and testing programs.
- Implement proper maintenance and inspection procedures for the cooling, electrical, exhaust, fuel, lubrication, and battery charging subsystems.
- Develop a Preventive Maintenance schedule as recommended by the manufacturer, NFPA 110, and subject matter experts.
- Standardize battery inspection and testing procedures. Starting batteries are the number one cause of EPSS failures.
- Follow NFPA and OSHA requirements for training and safety of personnel.
- Health Care Facilities: Breakdown of the Essential Electrical Distribution System, life safety, critical, and equipment branch, and what circuits belong to each.
The EPSS Manual was developed specifically for facility management and operations personnel, covering all weekly maintenance and monthly testing procedures for the EPSS such as cooling, lubrication, fuel, exhaust, starting battery and battery charging subsystems. Bonus material is included for healthcare facilities to comply with CMS, DNV, and The Joint Commission.
