Building Safety Month

Prevent, Prepare, Protect


Week One - Energy and Innovation

The building safety industry is on the cutting edge of energy efficiency, building science and innovation. From green construction and resiliency to product evaluation, certification and codification, the International Code Council family of solutions is part of this technological transformation to make our buildings safer and our industry more advanced and adaptable.

The International Codes (I-Codes), developed by the Code Council, are the most widely used and adopted set of building safety codes in the world. For decades, our codes and standards have addressed energy efficiency and sustainability by incorporating the latest innovations in science and technology, and we remain committed to working with member jurisdictions and industry partners to bring the right building products and practices to market, labeling new homes and structures as more efficient, and spreading the word about the need for wiser resource usage and building resilient structures.

Week Two - Training the Next Generation

The building industry will experience a loss of 80 percent of the existing skilled workforce over a 15 year period.  In fact, the entire building industry, including code officials, is looking at a severe workforce shortage of qualified candidates.
