This May marks the 42nd annual Building Safety Month. “Safety for All: Building Codes in Action” is the theme for this year’s campaign. Building Safety Month initiatives help to provide homeowners, government officials and the public with the information and resources to prepare and protect the built environment.
The 2022 campaign themes include:
- Week One, Planning for a Safe & Sustainable Tomorrow
- Week Two, Exploring Careers in Building Safety
- Week Three, Understanding Disaster Mitigation
- Week Four, Creating a Safe & Abundant Water Supply
“Building safety encompasses the expertise of many disciplines, including indoor environmental quality,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “The pandemic brought to light the importance of protecting building occupants from airborne exposure risks. These include everything from viruses, bacteria and mold, to lead, asbestos, VOCs and even radon. Other indoor issues include air exchange rates, air filtration, humidity and even carbon dioxide levels. All of these can have an impact on the well-being, comfort and productivity of building occupants.”
