An Engineer’s Advice on Ensuring Structural Safety

Many organizations don’t realize that building safety codes were designed to ensure human survival and nothing more. They don’t guarantee that your building will be operable or even occupiable after a disaster.

A building needs to go beyond that minimum safety standard to support business continuity.

In this episode, Tracy Kijewski-Correa, Structural Engineer and Associate Professor at the University of Notre Dame, explains the steps that organizations should take to enhance building safety and maintain operations following a disaster.

We discuss:

  • Why the loss of life and property is often preventable
  • Setting safety goals to thrive, not just survive
  • The competitive advantage of exceeding minimum safety codes
  • How organizations can help create market demand for safer construction
