DOB ANNOUNCES DEADLINE CHANGES FOR CONSTRUCTION SAFETY TRAINING REQUIREMENTS
DOB has extended the deadline by which many of the city's construction workers will need to have at least 30 hours of safety training, and by which construction supervisors will need 62 hours of training.
This requirement was set to kick in on December 1, 2018; workers will now have until June 1, 2019 to complete this training. These workers are already required to have a minimum of 10 hours of safety training and the 10-hour requirement remains unchanged.
In addition, DOB will extend the law's final deadline, by which workers will need 40 hours of training, from May 1, 2019 to September 1, 2020.
