The month-long educational campaign, which raises awareness about the importance of building codes in establishing and ensuring the safety of the built environment, kicks off on May 1, 2024. This year’s theme, “Mission Possible” encourages people to get involved in all aspects of building safety. Each year, the Code Council, its members and global communities celebrate building safety through proclamations, educational events and community gatherings.

Building Safety Month 2024 will explore how building safety is a mission that is only possible when we work together with our local communities for positive change. The weekly themes for this year’s campaign are:

  • Week One (May 1–4): “Understanding the Mission”
  • Week Two (May 5—11): “Preparing a Building Safety Plan”
  • Week Three (May 12—18): “Learning from the Pros”
  • Week Four (May 19—25): “Engaging Your Community”
  • Week Five (May 26—31): “Celebrating Success in Building Safety”

“Building safety should never be taken for granted,” said Code Council Board President Stuart Tom, P.E., CBO, FIAE. “By working together and spreading awareness of building codes and the role they play in ensuring safety in the built environment, we can protect the spaces where we live, work, play and learn.” 

The Code Council provides resources to promote Building Safety Month including safety tips, promotional graphics and resources for students.
