Under Local Law 196, construction employees are required to complete specified hours of site safety training if employed on construction sites that require a site safety plan, construction superintendent, site safety manager, or coordinator by March 1st. Construction workers require 40 hours of training, while construction Supervisors need 60 hours.
Submitting your application at your earliest ability is the best way to ensure you receive an SST Card sooner than later.
We encourage all construction workers who have not yet finished SST training to continue taking courses to submit their SST application as soon as possible. While inspectors are looking for your SST Card when they conduct walk-throughs, it helps to say that you took the initiative to improve safety at your job site compared to nothing at all.
Now is the time to take advantage of Gallagher Bassett’s online and virtual training options to meet the Local Law 196 requirements.
The timing of this all is rather convenient for workers who now can take training courses online rather than having to visit a training campus. This gives workers the ability to fulfill their SST training needs without leaving home.

Site safety training isn’t only crucial to your wellbeing; it helps keep a site compliant and accident-free.
