The International Code Council announced the 38th annual Building Safety Month theme – Building Codes Save Lives. Building Safety Month is an international campaign that raises awareness about building safety and the importance of current safety codes and the role of code officials in creating safe, sustainable structures that communities can rely on for generations to come.
During May, the Code Council, its 64,000 members, and professionals from the building construction, design and safety community come together with corporations, government agencies, professional associations and nonprofits to promote building safety through proclamations, informational events, legislative briefings and more.
Weekly themes throughout the month will spotlight specific areas of building safety: Week One (May 1-5): Partnering with Code Officials to Build Stronger, Safer Communities; Week Two (May 6-12): Advancing Resilient Communities Through Science and Technology; Week Three (May 13-19): Protecting Communities from Disasters; Week Four (May 20-26): Safeguarding Our Water; and Week Five (May 27-31): Improving Education & Training Standards for a Safer Tomorrow.
