The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections and the City of Seattle are proud to participate in the International Code Council’s annual Building Safety Month campaign this May. This event has been the emphasis of the International Code Council and its predecessors for the past 40 years. The goal and purpose of the International Code Council was to showcase the work and mission of the codes, officials who administer them, and the positive affects the community can receive when they are administered. There are weekly themes throughout May to educate the public on important issues such as being prepared for a disaster. The City of Seattle has been and continues to be a major contributor to the development and implementation of all types of codes relevant to the built environment.
