Building Safety Month

Building Safety Month logo


Building Safety Month is a public awareness campaign held annually in May to help citizens understand what it takes to create and sustain safe structures. The theme for 2019 is No Code. No Confidence.

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