Like most of the modern world, businesses and processes are all moving online. Since 2010, when the tablet computers became popular, more and more of our time and energy has been moved off of desktops and onto mobile devices. The shift online is to save time and money, where there is a lot of waste. We are now able to have the world wide web at our fingertips wherever we go!
For all businesses across the United States, there are set codes and regulations to ensure buildings and their occupants do not encounter hazards that could be avoided. Some of these hazards include fires from bad wiring, spread of fire from improper fire and life safety systems, and more. The NFPA 72 is the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code book that is published every three years. This book is used for all Fire and Life Safety Systems across the United States. This NFPA 72 also has a paper form to go along with it to ensure that the system is inspected regularly to prevent disasters.
The forms provided by the NFPA 72 can be extensive and thorough. It is easy to make mistakes or lose papers while having to fill out a paper form. As mentioned from the NFPA Journal’s Digital Input blog, “Beginning with the 44 codes and standards on the fall 2016 revision cycle, NFPA’s code revision and public input process was completely digital for the first time in the organization’s 118-year history.” This is huge for an organization that has only provided paper documents for over 118 years!
