Non-structural hazards

Source(s):  ParsQuake: Earthquake Education in the Global Persian Community

Many non-structural components in buildings such as furnishing and equipment, electrical and mechanical fixtures, architectural features (such as suspended ceilings), storage cabinets, shelves and glass may pose hazards when they slide, tip over, fall or collapse during an earthquake. In this interactive lesson, students learn to identify potential earthquake hazards associated with non-structural components of their schools and residential buildings. The lesson also features recommendations for mitigating hazards.
