2020 Building Safety Month’s weekly themes illustrate the reach and importance of the building codes

While the primary theme of the 40th annual Building Safety Month, “Safer Buildings, Safer Communities, Safer World,” illustrates the broad appeal of the occasion, it’s the weekly themes that break down the wide variety of safety, economic and societal benefits communities enjoy by keeping their building codes updated with the latest model codes. The weekly themes are:
• Week One, May 1-10: Disaster Preparedness
• Week Two, May 11-17: Water Safety
• Week Three, May 18-24: Resiliency. Sustainability. Innovation.
• Week Four, May 25-31: Training the Next Generation
