Abstract: Fire safety evaluation for business occupancies in Hong Kong is studied in this paper. Local fire safety codes were briefly outlined and compared with the safety parameters of the Fire Safety Evaluation System, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA-FSES). Main differences in the rating of flame spread for interior finishes, different views on calculating the travel distances for means of escape, and classification of dead-ends are identified. Based on the study, a fire safety ranking system is proposed by assigning possible scores to different attributes.
