IMPACT OF REGULATIONS ON FIRE-PROTECTION ENGINEERING AND DESIGN
Guidelines for fire protection engineering are discussed and national legislation dealing with health and safety is reviewed. The scope of the subject was expanded to include: the concept of the safety professional; a definition of safety that may be applicable not only to fire-protection engineering but also to other disciplines; and a methodology that might enable the fire-protection engineer to organize his or her approach to cope with the increasing regulatory burden.
