    This proposed amendment will increase the pool of qualified people that can register as Licensed Construction Superintendents. Section 3310-02 of Chapter 3300 of Title 1 of RCNY, paragraph (f)(2) already allows a Concrete Safety Manager to register as either a Site Safety Manager or Site Safety Coordinator. This amendment will allow a Concrete Safety Manager to also be allowed to register as a Licensed Construction Superintendent. This will increase the flexibility of an individual to determine which role they wish to assume at any given jobsite.

    In general this should be stopped as the qualifications for a superintendent are higher than a concrete safety manager this will lead to lower salaries and will hurt the superintendent community

    On anther note
    If allowing concete safety manager to be a superintendent shold pave the way to allow superintendents to be concrete safety managers as well

    Curently dob is allowing all certifications to become superintendents this should work both ways
