Safety codes and standards are vital to the safety of our communities. They are critical in driving the country’s infrastructure, safety, new construction, and even modifications to current infrastructure where modernization is taking place. The demands for these codes to address alternative fuels, more efficient construction techniques, “smart” infrastructure, enhancements in safety technology, and operational efficiency across the infrastructure, including homes, commercial buildings, and industrial operations, continues to be apparent across numerous codes and standards. The formation of the Coalition for Current Safety Codes sets the stage for communicating, educating, and advocating the importance for communities to adopt and enforce the most current safety codes and standards. This session will focus on the adoption of the National Electrical Code, but the discussion is germane to the adoption other many other codes and standards.
