International Code Council: Building Safety Month

ICC“Resilient Communities start with building codes”

The building safety month, an event that is being organized over the last 35 years, is perhaps the event that helps building professionals raise their profile. The effort has gained tremendous support and visibility in the public eye as building safety initiatives were showcased in various community events. The International Code Council’s theme for 2016 Building Safety Month, a public safety awareness campaign celebrated in May, is “Building Codes: Driving Growth through Innovation, Resilience and Safety.”

Why we need building code:

The conventional definition of building code, or building control, or building regulation, is a set of rules and guidelines that specify the minimum standard for constructed objects such as building and non-building structures. Building codes, or regulation of building construction is not a recent phenomenon, it’s been practiced for over 4000 years. Over time, people around the world have increasingly become aware of construction guidelines to avoid the catastrophic consequences of construction failures. We rely on the safety of structures; tall or small, that surround us in our day-to-day living. The community’s need for protection from disaster due to fire, structural collapse, and general deterioration underscores the need for modern codes and their effective administration.

The ICC role during this month:

ICC provides several resources to assist communities in driving the Building Safety Month, including strategies on how to set up an event, documenting a news release, a sample proclamation, kids’ activity pages, and much more. Many resources will be available for free download and others may be purchased from the ICC Store in the near future.
