This year’s main theme, “Mission Possible,” encourages people to get involved in all aspects of building safety. Building Safety Month 2024 will also include five weekly themes:

Week 1: Understanding the Mission.

Week 2: Preparing a Building Safety Plan.

Week 3: Learning from the Pros.

Week 4: Engaging Your Community.

“From installing smoke alarms and securing handrails to creating an emergency safety plan, there are easy things people can do every day” to ensure building safety, according to Stuart Tom, president of the ICC board of directors.
