ABSTRACT

Recently, there has been an increase in constructions of mega-sized shopping malls, skyscrapers and high-rise apartments. High-rise buildings and public use facilities involve the risks of accidents due to the high volume of floating population and residents population. Laws on structures, however, currently are not sufficiently prepared with safety measures for such risks or prevention facilities. As a result, the number of casualties from various accidents and fire from high-rise buildings and public use facilities is now at a critical level. Although a significant portion of the laws on safety of structures has been amended, reflecting the series of big accidents, it is not enough to rectify the problems caused by the general alleviation of regulations. Unless the trend that acknowledges structures as profit-generating objects and approaches mostly from a profit and commercial angle is changed, it is highly likely that accidents related to structures will repeat. Accordingly, safety of structures should be the top priority of organizing the laws related to structures. This research reviews the laws on safety of structures with the focus on safety of high-rise buildings and public use facilities with the aim of making policy recommendations on improvement projects in future. This research consists of the following chapters: (a) Chapter Ⅱ explores the general status of laws on safety of structures; (b) Chapter Ⅲreviews improvement projects for laws on safety of structures; and (c) Chapter Ⅳ makes recommendations on regulation policies on safety of structures.
