Asbestos and lead continue to be some of the most hazardous contaminants on today’s construction sites. Asbestos can be found in plasterboard, duct and pipe insulation, fireproofing, flooring, siding, ceiling plaster, and concrete. Lead-based products can include paints, lead solder, electrical fittings and conduits, tank linings, plumbing features, and metal alloys. In New York City, Local Law 196 of 2017 (LL196) requires that workers and supervisors receive safety training if their site’s designate a construction supervisor, site safety coordinator, or site safety manager. Once fully phased-in, this law mandates that workers at certain worksites receive 40 hours of safety training and supervisors receive 62 hours of safety training.

NYC SST-201 1-Hour Asbestos/Lead Awareness is an awareness-level online course designed for construction workers and supervisors preparing to earn a Site Safety Training Card (SST). It helps you understand the history and uses of asbestos and lead on work sites, health risks, handling and containment, OSHA standards, testing, and protection.
