Managing the ILSM Process24Sample ILSM Policy (cont.)ILSM Assessment Tool Instructions1. Evaluate the project or deficiency for impact on exiting, compartmentation, fire detection andresponse systems, ignition sources, storage, debris, and other potential concerns identified thecriteria.2. Determine if the impact is significant. In general, projects that are less than a week in length,which do not reduce the level of life safetyy below Life Safetyy Code minimum requirements,q, arenot significant. An activity which takes place in a room with an intact door and which does notpenetrate walls, generally does not require an ILSM. Activity that affects doors or walls for lessthan one shift generally does not require an ILSM. Activities that block or compromise exit stairs,requiredqexit corridors,, or exit dischargeg areas for more than one shift generallygy requireqan ILSM.3. If it is determined that an ILSM is warranted, monitor and document that the ILSM is in-placeand functioning as required. If the ILSM is not functioning as required, adjust the ILSM or reassess the situation.4 Document and submit findings to the EC Committee or designated sub-committee.4.sub committee5. Document enforcement of each required ILSM when appropriate. SMS, Inc., 2012
