Safety First and Foremost: Report on the June 5, 2013 Building Collapse in Center City Philadelphia
Glen Corbett (ed)
Report to Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter by a Special Independent Advisory Commission (Commission) he appointed to review and evaluate the Department of Licenses and Inspections (L&I) following a horrific building collapse, caused by demolition of the adjacent building, that killed six people and injured 13 others. L&I is the City agency tasked with ensuring building safety and issuing demolition permits. The Commission found that L&I is fragmented by divergent mandates accumulated over decades of mission expansion, chronic underfunding and leadership with differing goals and methods. L&I resources are too often spent racing from emergency to emergency with little lasting impact or focus on long-term safety or solutions. The Commission recommends that L&I should be divided into two cabinet-level departments: a Department of Buildings and a Department of Business Compliance, each focused on ensuring that safety is first and foremost. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
