Whenever a registered design professional learns of an unsafe condition through a critical examination of a building's exterior walls and appurtenances thereof, such person shall notify the owner and the department immediately in writing of such condition. Upon such notification, the owner shall immediately notify the occupants of the building of any unsafe condition by affixing a notice describing each unsafe condition in a conspicuous location in the lobby area of the building, which notice shall remain in place until each unsafe condition is corrected.  Notice shall also be given to occupants in at least one additional manner as established by the commissioner by rule.
