TOP STORIES

Local Law 196 of 2017: Construction Safety Training

With Local Law 196 in effect, all workers/supervisors must have completed at least a 10-HR OSHA training course. Beginning April 2018, the DOB requires permit holders to maintain a daily log that identifies each construction or demolition worker and supervisor (including construction superintendents, site safety coordinators, site safety managers, concrete safety managers or competent persons) on the construction site and their proof of training. Permit holders must use the log form created by the Department at //www1.nyc.gov/assets/buildings/excel/ll196_training_log.xlsx .
Violations for untrained workers at a construction site are up to $5,000 per untrained worker for site owners, permit holders, and employers of untrained worker(s). Violation for failing to maintain a log will result in a fine of $2,500.

For those who are still in need of a 10/30-HR OSHA course, we just lowered our prices! Click here to register!
