WASHINGTON, DC —The International Code Council’s Building Safety Month campaign reaches its final week with a focus on working together to address global challenges such as extreme weather and water scarcity. The adoption and enforcement of modern codes and standards, which are constantly updated to reflect the latest building science, is a crucial first step in protecting global communities.
Week 5, Solving Challenges Together, elevates the importance of implementing building safety solutions around the world to improve the resiliency and sustainability of communities.
“As Building Safety Month comes to an end, it is important to recognize that the responsibility of creating a safe built environment rests on the collective efforts of individuals across the globe. We all hold the power to make a lasting impact and, by helping to spread awareness of building safety, we can create a safer world for generations to come,” said President of the Code Council Board of Directors, Michael Wich, CBO.
