For the last 36 years the 57,000 worldwide Members of the ICC have celebrated advances in constructing safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient buildings and homes. The ongoing support of Building Safety Month and the important role code officials play in public safety in the built environment comes from the President of the United States, governors, mayors, county executives and other government officials and construction industry professionals. The Building Safety Month campaign helps to improve public safety by increasing awareness about how building codes and code officials improve and protect the places where we live, learn, work, worship and play.
“Building Safety Month is celebrated annually in May to help individuals, families, and businesses learn how to create and maintain safe, sustainable and resilient homes and buildings in the United States and around the globe. The initiative reinforces the need for the adoption of current safety codes, a strong and efficient system to ensure code compliance, and a well-trained professional workforce to provide public safety. Those three steps are what it takes to build stronger communities and ultimately a safer world. ”More Info
