User note:

About this chapter: Chapter 18 addresses tasks people might execute in a performance design. Many times, hazardous materials facilities depend on building occupants and users to perform certain tasks to avoid and mitigate emergencies. These activities are considered integral to the success of such facilities. Other examples include restrictions on the types of appliances allowed in the lunchroom or the number of staff available for certain types of events, such as sporting events. This chapter outlines not only the more traditional prevention and protection skills that existing prescriptive codes require, but also requires that where the actions or practices of people become a component of a design, such actions and practices must be maintained.

To promote safe practices and actions of people, and to ensure that the actions and practices of people who are components of a design are maintained.
