The International Code Council, its 64,000 members, and a diverse partnership of professionals from the building construction, design and safety communities come together with corporations, government agencies, professional associations and nonprofits to promote building safety through proclamations, informational events, legislative briefings and more. We come together to support Building Safety Month because we understand the need for safe and sustainable structures where we live, work and play.
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.
The International Code Council will offer virtual events this month (for both builders and the general public) that showcase a diverse range of topics hosted by subject matter experts from around the building industry. The lineup:
May 3 Tiny Homes and Afforability (3-4 p.m. ET)
May 10 Career Paths for Military Veterans (2-3 p.m. ET)
May 24 Backflow Basics: Repair & Testing (2-3:30 p.m. ET)
May 25 Pool Owner Safety 101 (2-3 p.m. ET)
