Jobsite Fire Safety

The North American Modern Building Alliance (NAMBA) has recently published several documents related to fire safety in the construction workplace. 
  • Five Common Principles of Building Fire Safety  This sets the stage for construction site safety.  It tells the bigger story.  Fire safety involves a chain of activities and stakeholders.  Everyone and everything plays a vital role.  Including prevention where the construction site safety protocols are super important. 
  • Construction Site Safety Guide (PDF) When a building is under construction many of the code requirements and systems are not in place yet.  Therefore, the safety protocols for construction sites need to be taken seriously. 
  • Smoke Toxicity and Epidemiology  All combustible materials produce toxic smoke when burned (including wood). 
Founded in 2020 as part of the American Chemistry Council, NAMBA is a leading voice on the safe and effective use of plastic building materials in building envelopes. We believe having an informed public and robust codes and standards are essential to supporting a multi-layered approach to building fire safety.
