NYC SST-307 8-Hour Fall Prevention for Construction

    NYC SST-307 8-Hour Fall Prevention for Construction

    Course Overview

    ClickSafety’s New York City SST-307 8-Hour Fall Prevention for Construction course is designed to meet the training requirements specified by the New York City Department of Buildings (NYC DOB) to help prevent deaths and serious injuries from falls in construction.  

    The course provides detailed information on Fall Prevention and ways to identify, evaluate and prevent Fall Hazards in construction. This course reviews common terminology and NYC Local Law 196 regulations that apply to Fall Prevention and includes effective means for preventing fall hazards and rescue methods if a fall does occur on the job.  The course also presents ways to use tools such as toolbox talks and tailgate meetings to help identify and prevent fall hazards.  The course provides exercises to help the user make fall protection decisions and selecting control strategies in order to prioritize fall prevention and jobsite safety.

    This course is proctored through voice authentication.

    Note: New York City Local Law 196 (LL-196) of 2017 specifies that, as part of the course requirements for 8-Hour Fall Prevention, Trainees demonstrate wearing generic fall protection equipment. ClickSafety’s online training program is approved by the NYC Department of Buildings to satisfy the Site Safety Training requirements; however, we recommend that employees work with their employers to ensure that trainees taking this course have the opportunity to put on, take off and safely use the protective equipment required for use on the job, learn about other project specific fall protections and ask questions specific to the project.

    Upon successful completion of the course, each student will receive a ClickSafety Certificate of Completion showing the 0.8 continuing education unit (CEU) and 8 contact hours received from an IACET-accredited course provider.
