The International Code Council announced the 39th annual Building Safety Month theme: No Code. No Confidence. Building Safety Month is an international campaign that culminates in May to raise awareness about building safety. For the event, the Code Council, its 64,000 members, and a partnership of professionals from the building construction, design and safety community come together with corporations, government agencies, professional associations and nonprofits to promote building safety through proclamations, informational events, legislative briefings and more.
 
“Building safety is about preparing for the future. The Code Council, in partnership with our members and stakeholders, develops model codes that integrate new technologies and the latest advancements in building science,” says Code Council Board President William Bryant, MCP, CBO. “Building Safety Month is a chance to celebrate the entire building safety community and to educate others about the importance of the codes to each and every one of us.”
