Abstract

This paper aims to evaluate fire safety systems of educational building laboratories by exploring the passive, active systems, and fire safety management. The evaluation was carried out in the University Integrated Engineering Lab in Depok City based on the applicable standards and regulations in Indonesia. Educational laboratories require a high-level safety measure against potential fire hazards due to the nature of the activities and equipment used. A reliable fire protection system and fire safety maintenance program are required to provide a comprehensive safety working environment. Lack of maintenance of fire safety systems is one of the causes of fires in educational laboratories. Triangulation methods consisting of field observation, interview, and document review were applied in this study along with descriptive and comparative analysis. Measurements by means of AutoCAD and Dialux simulation were carried out to support the evaluation process. The results show that the main features of the fire safety systems are installed in these laboratories according to the applicable standards and regulations. However, this study reveals that it is necessary to repair the walls, rearrange the sprinkler's head spacing, add fire extinguisher, sort waste, and establish a fire emergency response team and safety organization.
