NYC Local Law 196
In 2017, the New York City Council passed Local Law 196, which increased safety training requirements for construction workers at most worksites in New York City. Starting December 1, 2019, construction and demolition workers at any NYC jobsite with a Site Safety Plan must receive at least 30 hours of training in order to earn a Limited Site Safety Training (SST) card. And by September 1, 2020, workers are required to have a total of 40 hours of training and receive a full SST card.
After completing our 30-Hour Construction Training course, you'll be fully prepared for the December 1, 2019, training deadline. That's because the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) accepts OSHA 30 construction cards as equivalent to Limited SST cards. By September 2020, you must take an additional 10 hours of training to earn your full SST card.
