Amendment of Site Safety Manager and Site Safety Coordinator Qualifications

Adopted Rules: Closed to Comments

Effective Date: 
Wednesday, December 31, 2014





Local Law 52 of 2014 changed the effective dates of amendments of the New York City Construction Codes pursuant to Local Law 141 of 2013 and certain other local laws from October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. 



By rule effective December 19, 2014 (see rule titled “Amendment to Change Effective Date of Miscellaneous Rules Related to 2014 Construction Codes”), the Department of Buildings amended the effective date of rules that were previously adopted pursuant to the 2014 NYC Construction Codes to conform them to the new effective date of the code (December 31, 2014).



Therefore, this rule went into effect on December 31, 2014, not October 1, 2014.





Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule


The Department of Buildings (“Department”) is amending section 104-08 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York (“Rules”). 


The Department is amending section 104-08 by updating the section to reflect changes made to the New York City Administrative Code (“Administrative Code”) by local law number 141 for the year 2013, and by clarifying the eighteen month on-the-job training program and OSHA course requirements.


The Department’s authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter, sections 28-402.2 and 28-403.2 of the Administrative Code.
