Law Update Notice: Don't miss the September 2020 training deadline for Local Law 196! This New York City law requires workers at most NYC construction sites to earn a Site Safety Training (SST) card to stay on the job.
National Safety Training offers University of South Florida OSHA Outreach training courses that are accepted nationwide and throughout the state of New York.
All New York workers can complete the courses below to earn an official OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 card from the U.S. Department of Labor. And NYC construction workers with an OSHA 10 or 30 card can apply their Outreach training hours directly toward their Site Safety Training (SST) requirements.
For example, the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) accepts the OSHA 30 card as equivalent to the Limited SST card. To earn a Full SST card, workers with an OSHA 10 card must complete 30 additional hours of SST courses, and workers with an OSHA 30 card need 10 more hours of DOB-approved training.
Workers at any NYC jobsite that requires a Site Safety Plan must earn a Full SST card by Sept. 1, 2020, to comply with the latest DOB training standards.

NYC Local Law 196
In 2017, the New York City Council passed Local Law 196, which increased safety training requirements for construction workers at most worksites in New York City. Starting December 1, 2019, construction and demolition workers at any NYC jobsite with a Site Safety Plan must receive at least 30 hours of training in order to earn a Limited Site Safety Training (SST) card. And by September 1, 2020, workers are required to have a total of 40 hours of training and receive a full SST card.
After completing our 30-Hour Construction Training course, you'll be fully prepared for the December 1, 2019, training deadline. That's because the NYC Department of Buildings accepts OSHA 30 cards in construction as equivalent to Limited SST cards. By September 2020, workers with a Limited SST card or an OSHA 30 card must complete 10 additional hours of DOB-approved training to earn a full SST card.
