Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Local Law 196 of 2017, which went into effect on October 16, 2017, requires certain workers and supervisors at certain construction sites to have site safety training. Such training is being implemented in three parts, with 10 hours of training for workers being required by March 1, 2018, 30 hours of training for workers and 62 hours of training for supervisors being required by December 1, 2019, and 40 hours of training for workers being required by September 1, 2020. The rule would require that information pertaining to the site safety training requirements and applicable deadlines be available to workers and supervisors within construction sites. 

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 3301.9.5 of the New York City Building Code. 

New material is underlined.
