Ryan Klacking, CPC Council Director
The Voice Newsletter May 2024

As we get into the summer months, workload picks up, and safety becomes more prevalent. Every month should be about safety awareness, but May is designated to ‘Building Safety Month’, with this year’s theme of “Mission Possible.” Building Safety Month is presented by the International Code Council (ICC), which is a not-for-profit association focused on safety worldwide.

Building Safety Month is an international campaign that takes place during the entire month of May, raising awareness about building safety, and encompassing really, construction safety as a whole. These codes set in place protect homes, offices, schools, manufacturing facilities, stores, and places of entertainment, all of which we work within, in our respective businesses.

The ICC provides multiple tools to engage your staff on proper safety protocol including codes and standards used worldwide to construct safe and resilient structures. Some of the tools available include: brochures, social media awareness with the designated hashtag (#buildingsafety2024), toolbox talk items, and safety tip sheets. You can find and use all of these free materials online at: www.iccsafe.org.

During the month of May, I encourage you to participate, educate, and learn yourselves, the importance of continuous safety practices and awareness campaigns. Together, we can all work towards safer practices and work sites.
