The final week of the International Code Council’s Building Safety Month campaign recognizes the individuals and communities who excel in building safety initiatives.   

Week Five: Celebrating Success in Building Safety shares stories of exceptional individuals and communities that are dedicated to building safety initiatives not only in May, but all year long. This week also features celebrations and events that took place during this year’s Building Safety Month, as well as highlights from the Code Council’s 30th anniversary.  

"As Building Safety Month draws to a close, we acknowledge that our changing world relies on the combined efforts of many,” said Stuart Tom, CBO, President of the Code Council Board of Directors. “We all have the power to make a difference as proven by the actions highlighted this week. From citizens to engineers to governmental officials, no action is too small, and it’s important to celebrate any success in building safety as we embrace the future.”

The American Gas Association is the foundation sponsor of 2024 Building Safety Month. Week Five is sponsored by the American Concrete Institute and National Multifamily Housing Council. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, click here.
