• The OSHA 30-Hour construction safety training course is a comprehensive program for field supervisors, safety directors, foreman and construction workers. 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. This course can be done online.

Construction Workers and Supervisors

All classes are taught by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) authorized instructors. Students receive a card acknowledging they have successfully completed the class. OSHA cards do not expire. However, as per the New York City Department of Buildings, the card must have been issued within the past 5 years in order to work on any site.

The 10 Hour Site Safety Training, that is now required by NYC Department of Buildings, is a supplemental course taken after the 30 Hour Training.
