May is Building Safety Month
The month of May celebrates Building Safety Month to raise awareness about the importance of building safety and compliance with the Ontario Building Code.
The Ontario Building Code serves as a single source to ensure building safety and is recognized as one of the best building codes in the world. This code provides a comprehensive set of guidelines to ensure that all new buildings in Lake of Bays are sustainable, safe for occupants, and contribute to the overall well-being of our community.
Let's unite to celebrate the dedicated professionals who ensure compliance with the Ontario Building Code. Building officials, fire prevention officials, architects, engineers, builders, tradespersons, and design professionals all play an indispensable role in ensuring building safety is maintained at the highest level.
Take advantage of the resources below provided by the Ontario Building Officials Association. Whether you are considering a renovation, a secondary suite, are thinking about operating a short-term rental, or have a project, large or small, learn more about building safety and the benefits of following the Ontario Building Code.
"Building Safety Month reminds us that safety should always come first in any building project.” Says Stephen Watson, Director of Building/By-law Services. “The Ontario Building Code is a vital resource to ensure buildings in Lake of Bays are safe, sustainable, and contribute to our community's well-being.”
