Comparison of the Canadian Construction Site Fire Safety Regulations/Guidelines

The purpose of this study was to examine fire-related casualties, fire outcomes, and casualty behaviour for fires that occurred in residential properties, and to compare fires that occurred in buildings completely protected by sprinkler systems with those fires that occurred in buildings without any sprinkler protection.

This report provides an overview of the current state of construction site fire and life safety regulations using a detailed comparison of building codes, fire codes, occupational health and construction safety regulations from a section of jurisdictions throughout Canada.
