Local Law 196 of 2017 requires workers at jobsites requiring a Site Safety Plan (which includes sites that must designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager) to receive 30 hours of site safety training by December 1, 2019 and an additional 10 hours of training by September 1, 2020.
Supervisors will need 62 hours of training by the December 1, 2019 deadline. Workers seeking a Limited Site Safety Training Card may defer their 8-Hour Chapter 33 (Site Safety Manager Renewal) training until after December 1, 2019 and take 4-Hours of General Electives and 4-Hours of Specialized Electives instead.
In order to qualify for your Limited SST Card, 30 Hours of safety training must be completed. This can be completed by either:
NOTE: For the purposes of the December 1, 2019 training deadline, an OSHA 30 card or a Limited SST Card will serve as acceptable proof that a worker has received the aforementioned training.
In order to qualify for a Supervisor SST Card, 62 hours of training must be completed. This can be done by the following:
NOTE: Training received within the prior five years of applying for an SST Card, including a Limited SST Card, SST Card or Supervisor SST Card can be applied toward the requirements for receiving the card. Applicants who completed the training beyond five years may complete Prior Experience training, which includes 4-Hour Fall Prevention and 4-Hour Supported Scaffold User and Refresher, to receive credit for such training.
Workers seeking a Limited SST Card may defer their 8-Hour Chapter 33 (Site Safety Manager Renewal) training until after December 1, 2019. Instead of taking the 8-Hour Chapter 33 (Site Safety Manager Renewal) by December 1, 2019, such workers may instead take 4-Hours of General Electives and 4-Hours of Specialized Electives.
If you have taken a Department-approved course, like the 40-Hour Site Safety Manager or 16-Hour Rigging Worker courses, you may be eligible to receive credit towards your SST training requirement. Please review the SST course topics and the Department-approved course equivalents table.
