open in viewer

This project determines the underlying reasons for perceived low-level compliance with the Essential Safety Measures in Victoria, Australia. These were found to be lack of building owner awareness, maintenance costs, contractor unreliability, inconsistent enforcement and minimal compliance incentives. The report provides information on sound approaches already being used in other jurisdictions to address these causes and to promote compliance with fire safety regulations. This was accomplished through interviews, surveys, case studies, literature review and shadowing building surveyors in the field.
