County of Ventura Building & Safety Division joins International Code Council for the celebration of Building Safety Month 2024


Building & Safety Division to host an Open House on May 9th to promote building safety

VENTURA, Calif. – In honor of the 44th annual Building Safety Month, the Resource Management Agency’s Building & Safety Division will host an Open House on Thursday, May 9 from 2pm to 4pm at the Ventura County Government Center’s Hall of Administration in the Multipurpose Room, located on the 3rd floor. This event will provide the public with an opportunity to meet the County’s Building and Safety team, learn about the different trades involved in construction, and get more information about current job openings.

“Building Safety Month is a critical platform for promoting measures to safeguard lives and property from preventable disasters caused by inadequate construction practices,” stated Jason De La Torre, one of the District Managers for the Building & Safety Division and current president of the International Code Council’s Ventura Region Chapter. “With a commitment to fostering a culture of safety across the construction industry, Ventura County is honored to join hands with the ICC to champion this vital cause.”

This year’s campaign addresses how building safety impacts everyone on a personal, local, and global level. In addition to the open house, the community is welcome to stop by Building & Safety’s public counter each week to learn more. The themes for each week are the following:

  • Week One (May 1-4): Understanding the Mission
  • Week Two (May 5-11): Preparing a Building Safety Plan
  • Week Three (May 12-18): Learning from the Pros
  • Week Four (May 19-25): Engaging Your Community
  • Week Five (May 26-31): Celebrating Success in Building Safety

Building Safety Month is a worldwide campaign presented by the ICC, its members, and partners to promote building safety. This year’s campaign, “Mission Possible,” encourages people to get involved in all aspects of building safety. The campaign also makes the connection between building codes and our personal safety, as well as the important work done by building safety professionals in our communities.
