Building Safety Month is an international event held in May to raise awareness about building safety. This event highlights the need for modern building codes that are regularly updated and help individuals, families, and businesses understand how to make buildings safe and sustainable.
The International Code Council, its members, and various partnerships of construction, design, and building safety professionals work with businesses, government agencies, professional associations, and nonprofit organizations to advance building safety through newsletters, briefings, legislative briefings, and more. We came together to support Building Safety Month because we understand the structures in which we live, work and play require structures that are safer and more sustainable.
All communities require building codes to protect their residents from hazards such as fire, weather-related events, and structural collapse. Building codes are the best way for communities to protect their homes, offices, schools, manufacturing facilities, shops, and places of entertainment. Regulatory officers work day in and day out to maintain public safety.
Over the past 42 years, we have celebrated progress in building safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient buildings and homes. Ongoing support for Building Safety Month from Presidents, Governors, Mayors, County Commissioners, other government officials and building industry professionals as well as the Code Officer’s important role in public safety in the built environment.
The theme of Building Safety Month 2021 is: “Prevent, Prepare, Protect. Maintain Building Codes.”
More than 200 jurisdictions and organizations have issued announcements declaring Building Safety Month in May 2021, including US President Joe Biden. “Investing in our infrastructure and adopting and implementing modern building codes is the most effective mitigation a community can undertake.” See the National Building Safety Month announcement here.
