May is National Building Safety Month
National Building Safety Month is an initiative of the International Code Council (ICC) and their 64,000+ members across the world, as well as their partners in building construction and design, and the safety community. This month serves as an opportunity to educate insurance and commercial property professionals, as well as the general public, on “what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable, and energy efficient homes and buildings,” according to the ICC website. Some of the topics and tips shared throughout the month include disaster preparedness, construction professionals, and innovations in building safety. The general public may not be aware of how codes and code officials “improve and protect the places where we live, learn, work, worship, and play,” and this month can certainly improve that awareness!
