Statement of Basis and Purpose


The Department of Buildings (DOB) is updating Chapter 3300 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York by amending 1 RCNY §3310-02 to promote publicsafety by increasing  the experience requirements for Concrete Safety Managers who oversee the concrete portion of building projects that involve pouring at least 2,000 cubic yards of concrete.  The amended rule applies prospectively to all new Concrete Safety Managers, and to all renewals.


The rule also clarifies that Concrete Safety Managers’ registrations and renewals are subject to the provisions of Article 401 of Chapter 4 of Title 28 of the New York City Administrative Code.  This will allow the Department to hold Concrete Safety Managers to the same standards as licensees.


DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Section 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter and section 3310.9.1 of the New York City Building Code.
