NYC SST Training Deadlines

 

The last days of November 2019 caused an enormous stir among the supervisors at job sites who planned to receive SST training for getting SST card. Many of them did not succeed in doing it because Site Safety Training companies could not manage the number of queries from those who were interested in getting the necessary certificate. Therefore, lots of supervisors did not have the possibility and time to receive 62 hours training course and did not get a Supervisor SST Card.  According to Local Law 196, the supervisors at construction sites have to pay penalties as high as $5,000 if they do not satisfy all requirements of the New York City Department of Buildings.

In this context, it should be recalled that by September 1, 2020, the workers at construction sites must complete 40 hours of training.

There are two ways to fulfill the 40-hour training requirement by September 1, 2020. The first option comprises 30 hours of OSHA, 8 hours of Fall Prevention and 2 hours of Drug and Alcohol Awareness training courses. The OSHA 30-hour course deals with the questions covering occupational health and safety provides instruction on OSHA regulations and requirements and helps the supervisors and the workers to recognize and reduce the risks at construction sites. The 8-hour Fall Prevention course will teach the workers how to avoid accidents and injuries at job sites. 2-hour Drug and Alcohol Awareness training educate the workers on hazards that can be caused by the abuse of drugs and alcohol at construction sites.

The second option comprises the following courses: 10 hours of OSHA, 8 hours of Fall Prevention, 2 hours of Drug and Alcohol Awareness, 8 hours of Site Safety Manager Refresher, 4 hours of Supported Scaffold and 4 hours of General and 4 hours of Special Electives. During the 8-hour Site Safety Manager Refresher training course, the workers will know about the possible hazards of working in the New York City construction environment. The 4-hour Supported Scaffold training course will give the basic information that the workers need to know about supported scaffold safety.
