Last month was Building Safety Month.

This year marked the International Code Council’s 44th annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of building codes and the role that building safety professionals play in keeping our communities safe. Building Safety Month included five weekly themes, each addressing how building safety impacts us on a personal, local and global level. 

This year’s theme, “Mission Possible,” encouraged people to get involved in all aspects of building safety.

Gabe Maser, Senior Vice President of Government Relations and National Strategy for the International Code Council, sat down with us to talk about Building Safety Month and the role of building codes in ensuring safe and resilient communities.
