new york city safety training regulations

Safety training is vital for all construction sites throughout New York. Cities have their own requirement types, with specific requirements for occupational and construction risk mitigation in New York. These requirements include safety training, emergency planning, fire safety planning, construction site safety supervision, and environmental training for NYC. At The Safety Group, we are here to assist in meeting all requirements for training, certification, and occupational risk mitigation in New York. We work with contractors, facility owners, and developers to create safety plans and implement safety training to ensure adherence to all site and training requirements.

Improving Occupational Risk Mitigation in New York

The New York Department of Buildings has specific requirements in terms of occupational risk mitigation techniques, education, and site safety. We offer safety certification programs to ensure all contractors meet the requirements of Local Law 196. Local Law 196 has specific requirements regarding occupational risk mitigation in New York:

  • Workers at many sites must receive 40 hours of safety training
  • Supervisors at many sites must receive 62 hours of safety training
  • Possession of a Site Safety Training Card (SST Card) to authenticate all training
  • Work-specific training, such as scaffolding training

Contractors and supervisors are required to carry an SST Card to indicate their complete training in all requirements for construction risk mitigation in New York. This includes OSHA 10 Version training, OSHA 30 Version, and a 100-Hour Training Program Version. Depending on the type of work being completed, workers will also need additional environmental training in NYC to ensure safe handling of chemicals and waste.
