Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM)

Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM)


Interim Life Safety Measures are health and safety measures that are put in place to protect the safety of patients, visitors, and staff who work in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Because construction and maintenance activities can impact the facility’s life safety systems, the JCAHO requires facilities to develop Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM) to protect the safety and health of patients by compensating for hazards.

Our ILSM professionals have extensive experience in developing plans that comply with all regulatory requirements. We study every phase to identify hazards and determine preventive measures. Throughout the project, we audit life safety procedures to verify compliance with both JCAHO policies and your own standards, and train your staff and contractor personnel.

If you have an existing ILSM program, we can help with planning and assessments, or even manage the program for you.


We’ve built a solid reputation throughout the U.S. by delivering proven, practical solutions to life safety and occupational safety challenges in healthcare facility maintenance, renovation, and construction activities for decades.
