May is Building Safety Month

IMG_6829rt-450Building Safety Month was established to recognize and promote the role building codes play in constructing safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient buildings and homes. For the past 36 years, the ICC (International Code Council) has celebrated Building Safety Month in May. This year’s theme is “Building Codes: Driving Growth through Innovation, Resilience and Safety.”

Building Safety Month reinforces the need for adoption of modern, model building codes, a strong and efficient system of code enforcement, and a well-trained, professional workforce to maintain the system.

Most states and local jurisdictions adopt the model building codes maintained by the International Code Council (ICC). Tri-State/Service Group companies are well versed in these codes, plus any regional and local building codes that apply to your structure. Tri-State/Service Group is a valuable resource for best practices that keep the places where we live and work, safe.
