The team at Total Safety Consulting understands that understanding building code and OSHA regulations can be confusing and frustrating. Our professionals at TSC are here to help you comply with NYC DOB and OSHA standards. We are local code experts that can help your construction site remain compliant.
In NYC, it seems that everywhere you look there is a building under construction. To regulate the construction and demolition of buildings, the NYC Department of Buildings has set forth codes that must be followed to promote safety on the jobsite. The latest NYC Construction codes set forth the standards for construction sites.
Chapter 33 of the NYC building code sets the standards for safety during construction or demolition projects. Included in this code are regulations that promote safety of workers and the general public during construction projects. Some of the standards include:
The team of professionals at Total Safety Consulting knows the codes and standards put forth by the NYC DOB. We can help you by providing safety professionals for your jobsite that will monitor compliance. TSC can also help you draft a site safety plan for your jobsite that will comply with NYC DOB regulations.
On most major construction sites in New York City, workers must be able to show proof of completing OSHA 10 training within the previous five years. This is a requirement of Local Law 196 of 2017. By December 1, 2019, construction workers must have 30 hours of training and by 2020, workers on jobsites that require a site safety plan must have 40 hours of safety training.
TSC Training Academy provides the safety training that is required for workers to obtain their 40-Hour Site Safety Card. According to Local Law 196, workers must obtain their SST Card by September 2020.
