ABOUT THE COURSE

Local Law 196 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 most convenient way for a worker to receive a combined 40 hours of training is to complete a 30 Hour OSHA training program, an 8 Hour Fall Prevention Course and a 2 Hour Drug and Alcohol Awareness Course.

Note: This package includes 2 courses, when combined with your OSHA 30 will qualify you for your Full/Worker SST card. The 10 Hour NYC DOB SST training includes both the 8 Hour Fall Prevention Course and the 2 Hour Drug and Alcohol Awareness Course at a discounted rate. These courses may also be applied to the Supervisor SST card.

NYC DOB Requirement

As part of a new regulation (Local Law 196) the NYC Department of Buildings now requires that individuals receive a certain amount of DOB approved training in order to work on NYC construction projects. Among the training required for workers and supervisors is 8 hours of fall prevention training. Workers will also need a 30 hour construction training course and a 2 hour drug and alcohol prevention course to meet this requirement.
