Sponsors support safe and sustainable structures during Building Safety Month
All communities need building codes to protect their citizens from disasters like fires, weather-related events and structural collapse. Building codes are society’s best way of protecting homes, offices, schools, manufacturing facilities, stores and entertainment venues. Code officials work day in and day out to keep the public safe.
Building Safety Month is an annual public awareness campaign in May that is celebrated by jurisdictions worldwide to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe and sustainable structures. Now in its 40th year, the campaign reinforces the need for the adoption of modern, regularly-updated building codes, a strong and efficient system of code enforcement and a well-trained, professional workforce to maintain the system.
The campaign is presented by the International Code Council, its members and partners from the building construction, design and safety communities. Corporations, government agencies, professional associations, nonprofits and more come together to support Building Safety Month because they understand the need for safe and sustainable structures where we live, work and learn.
Building Safety Month is made possible through the efforts of extraordinary sponsors who receive an unparalleled opportunity to standout as leaders in building safety. This campaign is a chance for sponsors to reach the Code Council membership, others in the built environment and the public.
