Analysis on Level of Safety Performance and Occupants’ Satisfaction in Low Cost Housing
The general building conditions in low cost housing are part of human’s quality indicator. However, there are rising issues on the safety performance of the housing since the occupants are inclined to perceive safety hazards. Therefore, this paper explores the concept of Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) as safety performance tool. This research conducted a survey on safety performance and occupants’ satisfaction to 24 numbers of low cost housing at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The correlation result shows that safety performance has a significant relationship with occupants’ satisfaction. The findings supported the application of POE as the tool for safety performance.
