Construction Quality, Education, and Seismic Safety

Cynthia A. Hoover, Marjorie R. Greene, eds. This white paper addresses a topic of critical importance to everyone involved in designing, constructing, and inspecting buildings so they perform successfully in an earthquake. Recent earthquakes have shown that the construction and inspection processes are responsible for a significant amount of unnecessary earthquake damage. The report examines the problem, focusing on the relationship between the education of construction tradespeople, code enforcement personnel, and the earthquake performance of structures. The focus includes strategies to improve education of, and existing training methods for, construction workers and building inspectors. April 1996, 68 pp. ISBN 0-943 1 98-52-6.
