Founded by the International Code Council (ICC), Building Safety Month (BSM) is celebrated by jurisdictions worldwide during the month of May.
Building Safety Month is a public awareness campaign offered each year to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create and sustain safe and sustainable structures. The campaign reinforces the need for adoption of modern, model building codes, a strong and efficient system of code enforcement and a well-trained, professional workforce to maintain the system
The theme this year is “Building Safety: Maximizing Resilience, Minimizing Risks. Visit the ICC website at http://www.iccsafe.org/BSM/Pages/default.aspx for Building Safety information like Keeping Fire in its Place, Helping Homeowners Weather the Storm, Surround Your Building with Safety, and Building A Brighter, More Efficient Tomorrow. The information is geared for Code Officials, but is definitely a worthwhile read for contractors, private property owners, and other construction industry stakeholders.
