Local Law 196 of 2017 requires Supervisors at job sites required to designate a Site Safety Professional (Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager) receive 62 hours of site safety training. Thus includes construction and demolition workers on job sites with a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator, or Site Safety Manager.
For questions about the training requirements or to get additional information, please contact DOB at LL196Help@buildings.nyc.gov. For additional site safety training information, visit http://nyc.gov/nycsafety.
To determine whether your job site requires the safety training, please visit the Site Safety Construction Map and enter your job site address.
Workers can get training from a Department-approved Course Provider or an OSHA-authorized Trainer. In addition, to assist you in securing the required training for your workers, OSHA Training Tools provides information on employers' training requirements and resources like free publications, videos, and other assistance offers to help you protect workers against injuries and illnesses.
The Department has finalized its SST ID Card Design outlined below. Course Providers will issue this card design using NYCDOB Training Connect. Any new SST card issued after January 1, 2022 must be printed via the Training Connect platform. This includes reprinting and/or replacing old SST ID cards previously issued by course providers. However, we have not announced a deadline by when individuals will need to replace their previously issued SST IDs. That announcement will be forthcoming in the near future.
