Well-trained site safety managers (SSM) have an important role to play on construction sites. They can help prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, improve compliance with laws and regulations, reduce costs, engage workers, increase productivity, and enhance overall operations. In New York City, Local Law 196 of 2017 (LL196) requires that workers and supervisors receive safety training if their sites 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-33 8-Hour Site Safety Manager Refresher is an awareness-level online course designed for site safety managers looking to renew their Site Safety Manager Certification. It offers 8 hours of refresher training as mandated by Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York § 104-06 Continuing Education Requirements. In addition, it is perfect for construction workers and supervisors preparing to earn a Site Safety Training Card (SST). Approved by the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB), this course provides the knowledge, skills, tools, example steps, requirements, and resources necessary to promote a safe and healthy worksite.
NOTICE: This course uses voice authentication. VA courses were developed in conjunction with the NYC Department of Buildings (NYC DOB) to address LL196 online course proctoring requirements. These voice-authenticated courses represent a best practice to ensure the identity of the student by prompting users to verify their voice at random intervals throughout the course. Users must have access to a mobile phone or landline while taking the course to successfully meet this requirement.
