Philadelphia is like most cities in the United States with specific rooftop fall protection requirements, including building codes and safety training. OSHA and the City of Philadelphia are committed to the safety of others. They developed a new interagency collaboration with the City's Department of Licenses and Inspections to enhance contractor oversight and prevent catastrophes by employing three distinct strategies:
The City of Philadelphia embraced the State of Pennsylvania's Act 45, the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) in July 2004. The UCC includes very specific regulations regarding the administration and enforcement of construction codes.
In accordance with the Pennsylvania UCC, the Commonwealth adopted the 2015 International Code Council's (ICC) family of codes and became effective October 1, 2018.
When operating in a large metropolitan area like Philadelphia, you will need to meet federal OSHA requirements as well as the local building code. To help you, we’ve outlined the most important federal and local requirements for fall protection systems in the Philadelphia area.
