7. OCCUPANCY CONSIDERATIONS
Unless a graded fire hazards analysis demonstrates that a particular occupancy represents an
unacceptable fire risk to the health and safety of the public, site personnel, or to program
continuity, there are no restrictions on the occupancy of portable structures except as delineated
below and in the Uniform Building Code or applicable local building code.
Relocatable structures should be governed by site or facility-specific procedures for the use and
storage of combustible, flammable, radioactive, and hazardous materials so as to minimize the risk
from fire. Such procedures should also exist for activities, such as smoking limitations, isolation of
hot work, and other fire prevention measures that contribute to a reduction in fire risk.
7.2 Computer/Automated Information Systems Equipment
Relocatable structures used to house automated information systems or other computer
equipment should comply with NFPA 75, "Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing
Equipment," and supplementary guidance provided by DOE (DOE/EP-0108, "Standard for Fire
Protection of DOE Electronic Computer/Data Processing Systems," and other interpretations by
the DOE AHJ).
Relocatable structures may be used to house laboratories provided they were designed for this
purpose and comply with this Standard and the applicable NFPA Standards.
7.4 Hazardous Material Storage
Relocatable structures may be used for the storage of hazardous materials if the structures comply
with this Standard, the applicable NFPA Standards, and all applicable hazardous waste storage
