Building Safety Month

2019 Building Safety Month

Building Safety Month is a public awareness campaign to help citizens understand what it takes to create and sustain safe structures. As part of its participation, the City of Malibu will offer a "Tip of the Day" on Facebook, Twitter @MalibuEnviroDpt, and Instagram @KeepItCleanMalibu. 

This year's theme: No Code. No COnfidence.

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
