May is Building Safety Month

Building Safety Month raises awareness about critical safety issues from structural to fire prevention, plumbing and mechanical systems, and energy efficiency. Building codes and the officials who enforce them are making our families and communities safer and more resilient. Homes and buildings that are built in compliance with building safety codes result in more resilient structures that can help minimize the risks of death, injury, and property damage.

Visit the Safety Toolkit webpage of the ICC to find free safety information and brochures. To learn more about Building Safety Month, or join the conversation on social media at #BuildingSafety365.
