Fire safety audit in commercial building in Shah Alam / Liana Ezzana Zainal Rashid

Zainal Rashid, Liana Ezzana (2009) Fire safety audit in commercial building in Shah Alam / Liana Ezzana Zainal Rashid. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).


Fire safety engineers have successfully created and established fire safety systems in buildings. Even though sufficient and high quality systems are installed, failures still occur. In some cases, problems arise because the fire safety systems were not well maintained. This lack of maintenance on fire safety in a building results in fire-fighting equipments not working when it is needed. Not working in this context may as well apply to the fire escape routS. Sometimes, the design complies with the regulations but the improper space utilization may cause difficulty for the occupants to escape in fire emergency. Level of fire safety maintenance depends on its audit. It can be done by the maintenance department of the building and to be checked or reported by the Fire and Rescue Department (Jabatan Bomba). Jabatan Bomba has the guidelines and rules for every type of building to ensure satisfactory fire safety design in a building. And more important is the building's characteristics: its design, organization and fire safety system have an influence on the evacuation outcome. How easily an occupant can find escape routes and understand signs and instructions depend on the way-finding performance of the building.
