Buildings 17-stories or more undergo safety inspections


The State Specialized Inspection Agency (SSIA) began inspecting 17-story and higher buildings and construction projects in Ulaanbaatar on January 22, to prevent on-site accidents. On Friday, projects in the Zaisan Hill area in Khan-Uul District were inspected, while tall buildings next to Tengis Cinema underwent inspection on Saturday.

Below is a brief interview about the inspections with T.Baljinnyam, official of the Media and Public Communication Division of the SSIA.

-How many 17-story and higher buildings are there in the city to be inspected? What kinds of violations have you found so far?
-There are over 20 buildings taller than 17-stories in Ulaanbaatar. We will inspect them all. Generally, we are checking the building’s official documents, work conditions and how the workers and administrators are following occupational safety rules and standards. Right now, we are not allowed to report the violations. We will publicly announce them once the inspection results are complete.
-When will the inspection end?
-We are planning to finish the inspection within ten working days, counting from January 22. The results will be immediately made public afterwards.
