May is Building Safety Month
May is National Building Safety Month, which recognizes and supports all those who work in the building industry, including Washington County Department of Land Use & Transportation (LUT) Building Services staff.

Founded by the International Code Council building safety month is celebrated each May to raise awareness about critical safety issues. Building codes, and the officials who enforce them, make communities safer and more resilient. Homes and other buildings built in compliance with building safety codes result in resilient structures that minimize the risks of death, injury and property damage.

This year’s theme is “Prevent, Prepare, Protect. Building Codes Save.” Throughout May, LUT will reinforce the importance of energy and innovation, training the next generation, water safety and disaster preparedness. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to learn more.
