Seismic Safety Commissions and the Structural Engineer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am interested in any comments regarding the relationship Structural
Engineers have with Seismic Safety Commissions in their respective
states.

Specifically,
1.    Do you see a strong or weak link between Professional
organizations such as SEAOC and the California Seismic Safety
Commission.
2.    Are you aware of the Commissions Charge:
("The mission of the Seismic Safety Commission is to provide decision
makers and the general public  with cost-effective recommendations to
reduce earthquake losses and speed recovery.

The Seismic Safety Commission (SSC) is a California state agency that
advises the Governor, the
Legislature, and the public on earthquake policy related issues. We
develop and monitor seismic
risk mitigation programs, hold monthly hearings, and sponsor legislation
regarding seismic safety.")?
3.    Have you taken advantage of the body of information, publications
etc., available through the Commission?
4.    Are there areas not presently covered or endorsed by the
Commission which warrant attention?

I'm presently working with the SEA of Utah and the Utah Seismic Safety
Commission and would appreciate comments.

If appropriate, you can respond directly to me @ wellive(--nospam--at)ibm.net

Thanks for thoughts
