Well it’s here! Building Safety Month – a month to promote pretty much what it says: BUILDING SAFETY. And because all of us need to spend time in buildings or some sort of shelter, Building Safety Month is really for everyone. This year, the International Code Council (ICC) which sponsors the campaign has established four themes for each of the following four weeks:
Week 1, May 1 to May 8: Energy and Innovation
Week 2, May 9 to May 15: Building Safety Careers
Week 3, May 16 to 22: Disaster Preparedness
Week 4, May 23 to 31, Water Safety
Whether you are in the building industry or a related field or not, I hope to offer information and resources throughout the month for all of us. And if you are in the field, you can stop by the ICC Building Safety Month website to download toolkits, proclamations, and other materials to promote the month in your communities.
