New York City Enacts New Training Regulations for Construction and Demolition Projects

The New York City Council is implementing new construction safety training requirements in a new local law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York and the New York City building code. According to Int. No. 1447-C, all construction and/or demolition permit holders will have to make sure that anyone who is working under their permit will have completed either a 10-, 30- or 100-hour OSHA training course and that they hold their required training throughout the duration of the permit. If the worker is completing a 10- or 30-hour OSHA training course, they will also need to earn additional specified Site Safety Training (SST) credits.

Upon successful completion of their required training, workers will receive a Site Safety Training Card, or SST Card. There are varying levels of SST cards, including Temporary, Limited and Supervisor. Permit holders will have to keep daily site logs that include copies of relevant SST cards and proof that the permit holder is in compliance with the NYC building code. In the event that a permit holder is not in compliance, there are civil penalties starting at $500 and going up to $25,000 plus $1,000 a day for each day that the permit holder remains out of compliance.

$299,324 in proposed penalaties for Fall Hazards

CONCORD, NH – The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Luis Guallpa - doing business as Guallpa Contracting Corp. – for exposing workers to fall and other hazards at a Nashua work site. The Milford, Massachusetts, roofing contractor faces $299,324 in proposed penalties.

OSHA inspectors observed six of Guallpa's employees working on a roof without fall protection, and also observed workers using ladders unsafely, and failing to use head protection. The Agency cited the employer for exposing employees to fall hazards of up to 25 feet, for ladder and head protection violations, and for failing to provide effective training. OSHA cited Guallpa for similar hazards in 2014 and 2015. [ more ]
