[ARCHIVED] Schertz Celebrates Building Safety Month

Building Safety Month

Schertz joins International Code Council for the celebration of Building Safety Month 2022


Schertz, Texas – In May 2022, the Schertz Planning and Community Development Department is participating in the 42nd annual Building Safety Month, a worldwide campaign presented by the International Code Council, its members, and partners to promote building safety. This year’s campaign, “Safety for All: Building Codes in Action,” raises awareness about the importance of building codes in ensuring safety in the spaces in which we live, work and learn.

Homes and buildings that are built in compliance with building safety codes and the officials who enforce the codes are essential to helping communities become affordable, resilient, and energy and water-efficient. Building Safety Month provides homeowners, government officials, and the public with the necessary information and resources to prepare and protect our built environment. 

 This year’s campaign themes are: Week One, May 1-8, Planning for a Safe & Sustainable Tomorrow; Week Two, May 9-15, Exploring Careers in Building Safety; Week Three, May 16-22, Understanding Disaster Mitigation; May 23-31, Creating a Safe & Abundant Water Supply

In honor of Building Safety Month, the Building Inspections Division will be at Lowe’s in Schertz to be a resource for the community on May 19 - 20 from 8:00 - 11:30 a.m. and May 25 - 26 from 8:00 - 11:30 a.m. 

With an extensive history dating back to 2200 B.C and the Code of the Hammurabi, king of the Babylonian Empire, building codes have protected the public for thousands of years.   Today, the International Codes, developed by the Code Council and adopted by our community, are the most widely used and adopted set of building safety codes in the world.
