This May celebrate the building codes that protect your family and community

 

 

Washington, D.C. – This May join a diverse coalition of corporations, nonprofits, government agencies and professionals in the building industry to support the 38th annual Building Safety Month. Presented by the International Code Council, this global campaign reminds us of the importance of building codes in protecting our families and communities.

Building codes are often the difference between preservation or destruction and life or death. Modern codes and standards incorporate the latest technology and provide the safest, most resilient structures to protect against building failures, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires and other disasters. Building codes save lives.

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), NSF International and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) are three of nineteen organizations financially supporting this year’s campaign. Here’s what they had to say about the importance of building safety:

“Building Safety Month provides the opportunity for the National Institute of Building Sciences to partner with other organizations in a common cause to advance the safety, resilience and performance of buildings,” said NIBS President Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA.

NSF International Vice President of the Global Water Division Dave Purkiss shared, “NSF International’s mission is to protect and improve human health. Working with the International Code Council, one of the world leaders in model plumbing and building codes, to develop strong codes, is an important tool in accomplishing that mission.”

“This year, NAHB is promoting the #Safety365 campaign, shining a spotlight on workplace safety and the many educational programs and resources we have created for our members, their employees and subs. Building Safety Month is an important way to put a spotlight on this effort,” stated NAHB CEO Jerry Howard.
