NFPA LiNK Launches YouTube Channel and App Enhancements
The National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) is bringing enhanced features and a supporting YouTube channel to NFPA LiNK®, a subscription-based application that delivers digital NFPA codes and standards, expert commentary and supplemental content. The NFPA LiNK YouTube channel will complement NFPA LiNK by providing users with supplemental content, enabling them to maximize use of the application. In tandem, new product features mark another step forward in streamlining workflows that help users in all aspects of building, design and construction.
“We’re excited to roll out these new features and videos in NFPA LiNK,” said Kyle Spencer, Director of NFPA LiNK. “NFPA LiNK is critical for delivering real-time information to workers and helping them create safer communities and jobsites. In an ever-changing industry, NFPA LiNK is constantly evolving as well to address digital-first needs based on user feedback from the people who are experiencing industry shifts first-hand.”
NFPA LiNK® YouTube Channel
Designed with NFPA LiNK end-users in mind, the new YouTube channel provides tutorials and quick-start video guides for optimizing NFPA LiNK, as well as content discussing industry-specific codes, classifications, and requirements for electrical, fire, and life safety.
Additionally, the NFPA LiNK YouTube channel will provide viewers with expert insights into digital codes and standards, educational content regarding the state of the industry, and critical insights about the latest in digital technologies.
Code Change Tools
Three recent code change indicators added to NFPA LiNK enable users to easily view and understand NFPA code changes.
- Change Summaries offer expert insight into code revisions instated since the prior edition.
- Interactive Change Indicators make it easier for users to identify and understand these updates and deletions from edition to edition.
- Tentative Interim Amendments (TIA) Change Indicators inform users of code amendments made since the publication was released.
A new expandable and collapsible Table of Contents enables improved navigation within the NFPA LiNK application. This upgrade, based on user feedback, streamlines navigation between chapters, articles, and annexes within the interactive publications. This new feature also includes Bookview, enabling users to navigate the entire publication without exiting the screen.
