Abstract

In this paper, methods to institute a sustainable safety inspection system for extent multiple dwellings in Korea are presented. The results of the study are summarized below. First, on the basis of a study on the safety inspection systems for multiple dwellings in Japan and the United States, the state of the safety inspection systems and the policies for multiple dwellings in Korea is examined. Subsequently, the weaknesses of the Korean safety inspection systems and the need to revise them are discussed. Second, the housing circumstances in Korea, Japan, and the United States are analyzed and compared, including laws on safety inspection for multiple dwellings, targets and items of inspection, qualifications for inspection, building history systems, and qualified professionals for safety inspection. On the basis of the analysis and comparison, the differences between the systems of the three nations and the issues that need to be introduced in Korea are presented. Third, based on the safety inspection experiences in Japan and the United States, new directions of safety inspection and methods to enhance current systems for multiple dwellings in Korea are proposed.
