Huntington Beach, California, May 3, 2024

This month marks the 44th annual Building Safety Month in California and across the globe. The theme for this year’s campaign is Mission Possible and a number of organizations, companies and municipalities in California are taking part in activities to raise awareness of the importance of building safety.

Building Safety Month initiatives help to provide property owners, landlords, facility managers, government officials and the public with information and resources to create and maintain a safe built environment. The weekly campaigns for 2024 include:

  • Week One – Understanding the Mission
  • Week Two – Preparing a Building Safety Plan
  • Week Three – Learning from the Pros
  • Week Four – Engaging Your Community
  • Week Five – Celebrating Success in Building Safety

“Building safety encompasses the expertise of many disciplines, including indoor environmental quality,” said Michael Chapman, Laboratory Manager of LA Testing’s Huntington Beach facility. “In addition to factors such as temperature, humidity and air exchange rates, IEQ also includes everything from microbial, chemical and even radiological exposure risks. LA Testing’s building science experts are proud to support the efforts of Building Safety Month. With multiple laboratories in California, we offer IEQ, industrial hygiene, material and infection control testing services. We also provide sampling supplies, easy-to-use test kits, building inspection tools, air monitoring instruments and a wide range of personal protective equipment.
