Become a registered Safety Assessment Evaluator and be prepared to help local governments perform accurate facility-safety assessments in the aftermath of a disaster.
AIA East Bay and the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), will present an all-day training program available to licensed architects, registered engineers, or certified building officials and inspectors.

This full-day training will provide guidelines and procedures for making post-disaster building safety evaluations. The purpose of these evaluations is to determine whether damaged or potentially-damaged buildings are safe for use or if entry should be restricted or prohibited.

This training provides procedures for two different levels of safety evaluation and advice on evaluating structural, geotechnical and nonstructural hazards:

  • Where to look for damage.
  • How to rate the safety significance of damage.

About the speaker:
Statewide Safety Assessment Program Coordinator Jason Spotts is a civil engineer with over 15 years of experience.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this full day training, you will:1) Become proficient in California’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) Safety Assessment Program (SAP)

2) Become registered to assist jurisdictions across California and the nation with accurate evaluation of facilities, buildings, and infrastructures in the aftermath of a disastrous event

3) Qualified individuals will earn a State-issued OES badge (in addition to 6 AIA/ CES HSW LUs)

From Cal OES: “The Safety Assessment Program utilizes volunteers and mutual aid resources to provide professional engineers and architects and certified building inspectors to assist local governments in safety evaluation of their built environment in an aftermath of a disaster. The program is managed by Cal OES with cooperation from professional organizations. SAP produces two resources, SAP Evaluators, described above, and SAP Coordinators, which are local government representatives that coordinate the program. Cal OES issues registration ID cards to all SAP Evaluators that have successfully completed the program requirements.”
