The theme for the International Code Council's 41st Annual Building Safety Month is “Prevent, Prepare, Protect. Building Codes Save,” and with everyone’s safety in mind, all Building Safety Month events will be held virtually this year. Each year, the Code Council, its 64,000 members, and professionals across the building safety landscape participate in the educational and interactive campaign designed to raise awareness about the importance of building codes in ensuring safety in the spaces in which we live, work and learn. The weekly themes for the 2021 Building Safety Month are:
• Week One (May 1-9): Energy & Innovation
• Week Two (May 10-16): Training the Next Generation
• Week Three (May 17-23): Water Safety
• Week Four (May 24-31): Disaster Preparedness
