To determine the effectiveness of building codes in contemporary settings, this paper provides an analysis as to the adequacy of specific sub-parts taken from 29 CFR 1926, Sub-parts 16(a) - (d), Construction Industry Standards. The paper concludes that such regulations are appropriate and should remain in place.

From the Paper:

"The regulation of building construction has been traced back 4,000 years to ancient cultures such as the Chinese, Greek and Roman empires. Long ago, building regulations emerged based on the attempts of our ancestors to establish ways to control or avoid devastation from building fires and construction failures (Lynch, 2001). Today, there are a number of specific parameters that affect the cost of buildings including government building codes which are enacted with the intention of protecting public health and safety. These codes can assume the form of both prescriptive and performance requirements, as well as industry demands which may not be reflected in actual building codes themselves which consist of such desirable factors as climate control, elevators and other aesthetics (Building Codes, 2001)."
