SMACNA Sponsors ICC Building Safety Month

Initiative encourages industry stakeholders to actively promote best practices in areas such as sustainability, disaster preparedness, and water safety.

SMACNA will be sponsoring the International Code Council’s (ICC) Building Safety Month. The international event, occurring throughout May, is designed to raise industry awareness of several topics and corresponding safety best practices. Each week in May will focus on a specific topic of importance, and are as follows:

  • Week 1 (May 1-8) Energy and Innovation
  • Week 2 (May 9-15) Building Safety Careers
  • Week 3 (May 16-22) Disaster Preparedness
  • Week 4 (May 23-31) Water Safety

This is the 42nd edition of Building Safety Month, meant to celebrate advances in providing affordable, sustainable, and safe buildings. The 2021 edition of the event received support from several leaders across business and government, including a proclamation from President Joe Biden.

SMACNA joins a prestigious list of sponsors for the 2022 event, including State Farm, the American Concrete Institute, Simpson/Strong-Tie, and the National Multifamily Housing Council.
