Nystrom Introduces CE Course Offering AIA HSW Learning Units

One Step at A Time: Safety & Sustainability Offered Via Live Webinars

Nystrom introduced a new continuing education course available on-demand or through live webinars aimed at building design professionals that examines how stair nosing products improve building safety and offer new sustainable materials.

The course titled One Step at A Time: Safety & Sustainability, offers design professionals stair design, product, code, and installation information to use stair tread and stair nosing products in commercial building designs to increase pedestrian safety.

“Pedestrian falls on stairs are preventable with planning,” said Brad Fish, Director of Sales at Nystrom and a 30-year veteran of the stair nosing industry. “The first stair nosings in the 1800s were cast iron and used to prevent slips by passengers getting on and off-street cars.” Fish adds that the basic stair nosing design is largely unchanged, but that today’s products are improved to meet modern building designs and codes. Stair treads are made of lightweight, durable extruded aluminum and the slip-resistant surface is made of recycled materials.

The stair nosing products offered by Nystrom feature EcoTread™, a 90% recycled rubber material that is non-slip, fade and wear-resistant, replaceable, and easy to maintain and clean.

One Step at A Time: Safety & Sustainability is approved by the American Institute of Architects and provides architects, specifiers, and designers one learning unit and one hour of Health Safety and Welfare credit. The free course is offered in-person by appointment, as a live webinar either prescheduled or public, and on-demand through our website. To register visit the CE Learning Center.
