Celebrate Building Safety Month in May
Building Safety Month is an international campaign celebrated in May to raise awareness about building safety.
An International Code Council (ICC) campaign, Building Safety Month was formed in 1980 as a response to a series of preventable tragedies, including a Kentucky nightclub fire that killed 165 people just a few years earlier. Investigators surmised that the enforcement of safety codes could have prevented this tragedy. Building Safety Week was created to raise awareness of building safety and fire prevention codes. IAS, a subsidiary of ICC, offers multiple accreditation programs that assist code officials in making buildings and home safer. https://bit.ly/2DyJGRy
