The program is designed to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for men and women. This class will cover OSHA standards and procedures, fall protection, health hazards, electrical hazards, worker’s rights and more.
Under Local Law 196, New York City now requires all workers within specified job sites to meet new OSHA training requirements. By December 1st, 2018, all workers must have a Limited Site Safety Training Card. To obtain this, workers must complete a 30-hour OSHA course. (You can learn more here.)
NYC Dept of Buildings Notice:
Local law 197 of 2017 introduced new training requirements for construction workers and supervisors. Workers MUST complete a total of 40 hours of training by September 1st, 2020 in order to qualify for a Site Safety Training (SST) Card.
The easiest way for a worker to receive a combined 40 hours of training is to complete the 30 Hour OSHA Construction training program and then the 10 hour Site Safety Training which is comprised of an 8 Hour Fall Prevention Course and the 2 Hour Drug and Alcohol Awareness Course.
