May is Building Safety Month

For more than four decades, the International Code Council, its members, and a diverse group of professionals for the building construction, design and safety communities have come together to celebrate Building Safety Month.

Building Safety Month provides education for the public about solutions that improve the safety, sustainability, affordability, and resiliency of buildings, infrastructure and communities. Contemporary planning, building materials, design and construction can make our communities more resilient in the aftermath of disasters, fires and other events. 

Building Safety Month unites industries, associations, academia and government under a common goal to protect the public by creating a safe and resilient built environment.
