Abstract

A checklist was made and presented for the safety investigation of architecture, civil engineering, fire fighting, electricity, gas and lifts. The evaluation basis of the synthesized level was provided through the estimating index and basis, considering the individual area. The proposed assessment criteria for the safety grade of Public Use Buildings and Facilities (PUBF) have been developed on the basis of circumstance estimation in order to provide the safety level. Consequently, three assessment methods of absolute evaluation and three of relative evaluation are proposed, based on normal or log normal distribution. Evaluation domains, fields and items were decided to estimate the safety of the PUBF; the safety grade was also decided as being five levels. Keywords: safety grading system, safety investigation, assessment criteria, evaluation domain, evaluation field, evaluation item, weights decision method, public use buildings and facilities.
