ATC-20 SAP and ATC-45: Post-earthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings and Cal-OES Safety Assessment Program Training (ATC-20 SAP) and Safety Evaluation of Buildings after Windstorms and Floods (ATC-45)

ATC-20 SAP Postearthquake Safety Evaluation of Buildings

The ATC-20 documents are written for use by qualified professionals who would be required to make on-the-spot evaluations and decisions regarding continued use and occupancy of damaged buildings.  The methodology provides procedures for rapid and detailed evaluations that result in posting them as INSPECTED (green placard), RESTRICTED USE (yellow placard), or UNSAFE (red placard). Also included are special procedures for evaluation of essential buildings (e.g., hospitals), evaluation procedures for nonstructural elements and geotechnical hazards, and limited guidance on human behavior following earthquakes.  Rapid evaluations typically take 10-30 minutes per building and provide an initial general assessment of damage and safety, typically from the exterior of the building; the suggested personnel include building inspectors, civil and structural engineers, architects, and disaster workers.

SAP Training: A 6-hour postearthquake safety evaluation of buildings training based on ATC-20 series of documents that also incorporates requirements of the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) Safety Assessment Program (SAP). This training includes considerations for safety evaluations following wind, blast, and flood events, evaluation of non-building engineered structures (bridges, pipelines, etc.), and the post-disaster organization and procedures used in California.  Certification: Participants who are registered engineers, architects, and building inspectors may apply for the SAP photo identification card upon completion of the training and make themselves available to provide mutual aid following a California earthquake.  Please allow additional time for completion of the SAP registrations after the conclusion of the training.

ATC-45 Safety Evaluation of Buildings after Windstorms and Floods

The ATC-45 Field Manual is an adaptation of the ATC-20 methodology and other relevant procedures and is written for use by building officials, volunteer design professionals, and other emergency response personnel who are called upon after windstorms and floods to determine whether damaged, or potentially damaged, buildings are safe for occupancy.  The methodology provides procedures for rapid and detailed evaluations that result in posting them as INSPECTED (green placard), RESTRICTED USE (yellow placard), or UNSAFE (red placard).

Inside Out Inspection Services is hosting this event and we have applied for WA DOL continuing education credits (11 CEUs). We will update the site as soon as approval is given. This course is a great addition to your business plan as a licensed home inspector and can be additional income in the wake of a disaster.
