Building Safety Month: Week 2 Focus On Training

Codewatcher ICC building safety month week 2

Building Safety Month continues into its second week with the theme of “Ensuring a Safer Future through Training and Education.”

This week the International Code Council, along with its members and partners, will explore the ways in which well-trained building safety professionals are a crucial part of maintaining a safe built environment. Thorough training and education helps code officials avoid accidents and mistakes and properly enforce codes and standards.

Professions within the building safety field vary widely in their specialties, and the industry offers many well-paying career options for today’s workforce. Positions include building inspectors, building officials, special inspectors, permit technicians, fire marshals, plumbing inspectors and more. The Code Council provides a number of resources for new professionals entering the building safety field through its Safety 2.0 initiative.For related resources about week 2 of Building Safety Month, click here.
