The International Code Council’s Building Safety Month continues this week with a focus on resiliency, sustainability, and innovation, plus a particular emphasis on upholding sustainability through regularly updated and properly implemented building codes.
“The Code Council is committed to the technological advancements that prepare us for the future and enhance building safety and the built environment,” says Dominic Sims, CBO, chief executive officer of the Code Council. “COVID-19 has emphasized the value of technology for keeping us safe by underscoring the importance of the latest advancements in building science and encouraging the transition to virtual operations for code departments.”
To mark Week 3, the ICC will host its third free Building Safety Month Webinar on Wednesday, May 20th, 2020 at 1:00 PM EST. The webinar’s panelists – including a code official, builder, architect, and an expert in laborers’ health safety – will discuss the short- and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the safety industry.
“The theme of week three – Resiliency. Sustainability. Innovation. – addresses accreditation as a driver of innovation,” says Ingrid Miller, Senior Accreditation Officer for A2LA, a week three sponsor. “International and industry standards create a crucial framework for competency and consistency that make the innovations of the modern world possible. A2LA is committed to demonstrating the value of accreditation and contributing to advancements in quality.”
