Emergency and Standby Power Systems
Maintenance, Testing, and Compliance
What should you know about current emergency power requirements? Much more than ten years ago, with more in the years to come. As of today, there are over 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 makes compliance with those requirements easy by providing education programs covering each component of the EPSS including; cooling, electrical, fuel, lubrication, starting batteries and battery charging subsystems. While reviewing this free training video ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I performing all maintenance activities adequately to ensure the EPSS will start & run when needed, and meet all AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) requirements?
- Do I have the proper EPSS documentation and records for inspections, maintenance, and testing?
- Did I perform all monthly and triennial tests properly? Will AHJ surveyors accept the testing reports?
- Does my EPSS installation meet NFPA requirements for lighting, cooling, ventilation, fuel supply and storage?
