The New York City Department of Design and Construction has its own employee safety field reference guide for contractors to abide by the Bureau of Quality Assurance and Construction Safety.
New York City is also in the process of implementing new OSHA training requirements under Local Law 196 that will be fully phased in by May for construction workers and supervisors at certain job sites. By May 1, 2019, workers are required to have a Site Safety Training Card.
Understanding and meeting those requirements can seem overwhelming, but we are here to help. We want to partner with you and help you understand exactly what fall protection requirements you need to meet and the best methods for implementing fall protection solutions.
When operating in a large city like New York, you will need to meet federal OSHA requirements as well as the local building code. To help you, we’ve outlined the most important federal and local requirements for fall protection systems in New York City.
We pride ourselves on not being "just another company trying to sell you something". We take safety seriously and we want to partner with you to make sure you receive the right fall protection solution that meets compliance requirements, protects your workers while they work at height, and reduces liability for your company.
