The State of Utah is participating in the 40th 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, “Safer Buildings, Safer Communities, Safer World,” highlights the importance of building codes for providing a strong and resilient built environment.
Draper City’s building codes are frequently updated to ensure that all construction in the city is meeting the International Code Council’s guidelines. We have a highly skilled team of building inspectors, engineers, construction plan reviewers and Fire Marshalls who endeavor to make sure that any structure you are in is a safe one. Homes and buildings that are built in compliance with building safety codes, and our employees who enforce those codes, are essential to helping communities minimize the risks of death, injury and property damage in the event of a disaster.
This year’s campaign themes are:
Week One, May 1-10: Disaster Preparedness
Week Two, May 11-17: Water Safety
Week Three, May 18-24: Resiliency. Sustainability. Innovation
Week Four, May 25-31: Training the Next Generation
