    Carry out inspections on buildings to avoid collapse, LASEMA urges residents

    Lagos State Emergency Management Agency has urged residents to carry out regular inspections on buldings for cracks and other structural defects to prevent them from collapsing.

    The Agency, in a post on social media, advised building owners against work within limited funds at the expense of safety, quality and structural stability.

    LASEMA said this in reaction to the incidence of building collapse in Lagos which has been on the increase in recent times.

    “The reoccurring menace has claimed many innocent lives, valuable properties and huge investments. Although structural failures of building may arise from natural catastrophe, the pivotal cause of incessant building collapse in Lagos is the non–compliance with the building Industry construction standard and regulation for designated buildings.

    “The use of sub–substandard materials such as inadequate quantity of cement, concrete blocks, sand, poor workmanship and overloading or increase in floors of building contrary to foundational scope are the indices of structural damage. These lacunae can be curtailed through the instrumentality of safety compliance.

    “Residents should inspect their buildings regularly for Cracks and other structural defects and consult professionals for necessary solution and prevention.

    “Building owners should not work within limited funds at the expense of safety, quality and structural stability.

    “All Stakeholders in the construction industry should adhere strictly to the provisions of the Lagos State Building Code,” the Agency said.
