Field inspectors obtain compliance with applicable codes and ordinances, by inspecting structural framework, fire and life safety requirements, plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems. The inspectors are responsible for both residential and commercial structures.


Inspections are provided Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. (except holidays). Building and Safety's goal is to respond to all inspections requested within 24 hours.  Our cutoff is 5 a.m. for same-day inspections.

To request an inspection there are (2) options available to you:

  1. SPLASHhttps://splash.cityofsalem.net - Registered user/business accounts can login and schedule inspections directly on any of their permits. You can also review inspection results real-time and without being on the jobsite, and email your Inspector from your permit record.
  2. Phone: Call 503-540-2451 and leave a message with your name, phone number, permit number, job site address and the inspection you want.

An Inspection Checklist is available for your convenience.  They are intended to be used as guides for inspectors to inspect and for permit applicants to prepare for inspections.  It contains the code references used by inspectors while performing on-site inspections.

Note: The City has inspection activities performed by several workgroups - Building and Safety, Fire, Public Works, Planning, and Compliance Services - so more than one workgroup may have to be contacted to schedule inspections or obtain inspection results.
