New laws and stricter regulations, requiring more experience and increased training, have re-shaped our industry landscape. Previously, training requirements were based on project size, with sites under nine stories having few requirements and limited oversight.
In 2017, as a response to an increase in incidents, the NYC Department of Buildings implemented widespread changes and instituted new laws and industry practices. These stricter regulations mandate that workers on any project of four stories or more must be certified to have 40 hours of training, with an eight-hour refresher course every five years. Supervisors must now have 62 hours of initial training, with a 16-hour refresher course every five years.
Fortunately, these standards are nothing new to the experts at Pro Safety. Our consultants are well versed, and up to date, with the ever-changing safety regulations that govern your industry.
