Meet Local Law 196 Training Requirements for New York City
When the New York City Council passed Local Law 196 of 2017, the number of required safety training hours increased for workers at most construction sites in New York City. The new training requirement applies to construction and demolition workers at any NYC worksite with a Site Safety Plan.
As of December 2019, these workers must have a Limited SST card, which requires 30 hours of NYC Department of Buildings (DOB)-approved training. And by the full compliance date of March 1, 2021, they must obtain an SST Worker card by completing 40 hours of DOB-approved training.
Those who haven’t met Site Safety Training requirements for the December 1, 2019, deadline can complete a 30-hour OSHA Construction training course. The DOB accepts OSHA 30 cards as equivalent to Limited SST cards.
