The implementation of safety and health measures on building should be addressed during their life cycles to improve the occupants’ quality of life. Review of literatures shows that the design and management systems of building safety and health should be an integral part of all building systems. Otherwise, they may pose safety and health hazards to the occupants and affected the performance of polytechnic buildings in Malaysia. The objective of this paper is to propose a Building Safety and Health Modelling (BSHM) framework for polytechnic buildings in Malaysia focusing on the factors affecting the safety and health performance of a building. A through literature reviews of current safety and health practices related to buildings and facilities are briefly reviewed from journals, thesis and articles books in order to interpret the BSHM from a global perspective. A comprehensive BSHM framework consisting of two categories and six main variables was developed to address the variables for theory and implementation. Hopefully, the findings of this study can leads a basis for evaluating BSHM effectiveness and the development of practical assessment scheme to evaluate the safety and health of polytechnic buildings.
