Industry members convene in May 2021.

We’ve talked in previous blogs about the importance of safety in each and every building project. Choosing the perfect contractor and crew for your job is essential, as you want the proper precautions and safety measures to be taken in completing the work. Additionally, you’ll need a team that’s well versed in any codes you’ll need completed and approved for your project. Today, we’re talking about the International Code Council’s Building Safety Month.

The International Code Council (ICC) is the leading source of standards for model codes, standards, and building safety solutions around the world. Each year, they host a Building Safety Month, and this year it’s going online. Members from around the world will be able to take part in this year’s event that emphasizes safety and brings a renewed focus to specific issues. To learn more about codes and permits from Y Rock Trucking, check out our blog post.

This year’s event theme emphasizes “Prevent, Prepare, Protect. Building Codes Save.” The weekly themes will include Energy and Innovation, Training the Next Generation, Water Safety, and Disaster Preparedness, corresponding to each week in May 2021. The ICC’s website provides many resources for contractors and advocates alike, including promotional materials for this year’s Building Safety Month and a Kids Corner featuring educational activities geared toward children.

The Council recognizes that society is placing a greater emphasis on safety in both public and private buildings. It’s important that we continue to not only meet, but also exceed expectations for health and wellness. Taking care of our customers and completing their work in a safe and efficient manner, while providing a product that will last for years to come, is our top priority.

At Y Rock Trucking, we’re excited to continue educating ourselves with the most up-to-date resources available so we can provide you with excellent care and products. To work with us on your next project, visit our website for a free quote today.
