International Code Council prepares for Building Safety Month

International Code Council prepares for Building Safety Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. —The International Code Council has announced the launch of a new website dedicated to Building Safety Month, which takes place in May each year.

The Code Council and its partners promote the Building Safety Month campaign to raise awareness about the importance of building codes and the role of building safety professionals, stated a recent release. This year’s campaign will focus on energy, innovation, building safety careers, water safety and disaster preparedness.

The new website highlights the 2002 safety month theme of “Safety for All: Building Codes in Action.” Stakeholders around the world are encouraged to issue a proclamation declaring their official recognition of Building Safety Month.

“Building Safety Month gives us the chance to celebrate the building safety community and educate people around the world about the importance of building codes,” said Cindy Davis, president of the ICC board of directors, in a statement. “This campaign creates an opportunity for individuals to engage with their local communities to reinforce the need for adopting modern, regularly updated building codes and help others understand what it takes to create safe and sustainable structures.”
