Fall Protection Equipment Inspection Campaign

This year, the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Council, GBCA, OSHA and 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 2 – 6, 2022. 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).

Fall protection equipment should be regularly inspected and removed if in poor condition or past its date of effectiveness. 

General contractors will be principally responsible for conducting on-site inspections of fall protection equipment and removals. OSHA and the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Council have created a Smartsheet to help record and report on keeping jobsite equipment up to date.


In preparation for this year’s campaign, the PBTSC will once again be hosting a free Fall Protection Equipment Inspection training course on Thursday April 11, 2024 (9:00 AM to 12:00 PM) at the Finishing Trades Institute, 2190 Hornig Road Philadelphia, PA 19116.
