Building Safety Month - May, 2018

Building Safety Month (BSM) is a public awareness campaign to help citizens understand what it takes to create and sustain safe structures. This year's theme is Building Codes Save Lives.

As part of its participation, the City of Milwaukee Department of Neighborhood Services will provide additional takeaway materials on safety at the Development Center (809 N. Broadway, 1st floor) and offer safety tips on Twitter @milwaukeeDNS during the month of May.

Founded by the International Code Council, this campaign is celebrated by jurisdictions worldwide because they understand the need for safe and sustainable structures where we live, work and play.

The campaign reinforces the need for adoption of:

  • modern, model building codes
  • strong and efficient system of code enforcement
  • well-trained, professional workforce
