It’s survey time: Tips for successful LSC survey preparation

Scott Wytosick, CFPS, CFI-II, life safety coordinator for Akron Children’s Hospital and former Life Safety Code® (LSC) surveyor, says preparing for a survey is all about reviewing previous surveys.

“You need to be prepared to investigate if reoccurring problems still exist,” he adds. “Are there any changes that occurred since the last inspection?”

LSC officials are constantly striving to be survey-ready, with preparation strategies top of mind. Questions Wytosick has seen from facility leaders include:

  • Will the surveyor have access to the previous survey report, too?
  • What should teams look for in previous surveys?
  • What does a good review process look like, and who should be involved?
