Site Safety Plan (SSP) Submission: DOB NOW Jobs

To submit a site safety request in DOB NOW: Build, go to the Job Filings Dashboard screen, click on +Requests, select Site Safety, and then select Site Safety Plans or Site Safety Waiver.

Site Safety Plans can be submitted in DOB NOW: Build before the job is approved. Once the job is submitted, the plan examiner will review the site safety criteria that includes the building height, stories, footprint, and additional considerations for alteration and demolition. A banner will appear on the filing and an email will be sent to the stakeholders on the job indicating that the site safety criteria has been approved and that the site safety plans can be submitted. In addition, a separate site safety plan request is no longer required for subsequent filings.
