Site Safety Training Required. No Deadline Extension!
Local Law 196: Site Safety Training Deadline
Local Law 196 of 2017 Deadline has passed on March 1. There was no deadline extension this time. The law requires workers at job sites that must designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager to receive 40 hours of Site Safety Training.
To demonstrate completion of the training, beginning March 1, 2021 construction and demolition workers at the above sites must have a Site Safety Training (SST) Card issued by a DOB-approved course provider – All NYC Safety. In consideration of the additional time it may take between completion of the training and when the SST Card is printed and issued, a printout of the front of the SST Card, issued by a DOB-approved course provider, will be acceptable proof a worker is trained for a period of sixty days from issuance. Digital SST Cards connected to an interactive and secure application will also be acceptable.
New entrants to the construction and demolition workforce can begin working at the above sites after obtaining a Temporary SST Card from a DOB-approved course provider. A Temporary SST Card can be obtained upon completion of an OSHA 10-Hour course and is valid for six months from the date of issuance while the worker obtains the remaining 30 hours of training.
