This year, GBCA, OSHA, the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Council, the Philadelphia Building Trades Council, and the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters are working together to promote awareness of fall hazards on the jobsite as part of the nationwide safety campaign, May 1 – 5, 2023. As part of this campaign, which includes the National Safety Stand Down to Prevent Falls in Construction in May, we are promoting fall protection equipment inspections (FPEI).
In preparation for this year’s campaign, we are offering training:
Date: April 6, 2023
Time: 9:00am – 11:00am
Location: Finishing Trades Institute, 2190 Hornig Road, Philadelphia, PA 19116
This FREE training is open (no registration necessary!), and would benefit apprentice training coordinators and staff, signatory contractors, OSHA compliance officers, business agents, safety professionals, etc. The session will cover topics including PPE inspections, roofing and leading edge issues, retractables, and harnesses.
