Site Safety Update Reminder

Posted on January 26, 2018

We wanted to remind all our friends that Local Law 81 of 2017 went into effect on November 6, 2017.  Part of this law requires that a primary construction superintendent needs to have the site safety plan, signed and dated with all revisions clearly highlighted, kept on hand and made available upon request on site, per 2014 Building Code §3301.13.1.

As previously mentioned in our November 3rd, 2017 newsletter, there are additional site safety requirements concerning construction superintendent duties and when they must be designated, see newsletter here.

For more information regarding the requirement that the Site Safety Plan be kept on site, see the industry notice issued by the DOB here.

For additional information on the minimum requirements of Site Safety Plans, see the industry notice issued by the DOB here.
