About Course

OSHA 30 Hour Construction Training

Why do you need OSHA 30 training? In accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health act of 1970, employers have become responsible for ensuring a safe and healthy workplace for their employees.

This training program is a comprehensive review of OSHA procedures, policies, and standards. This course will give students a strong understanding of construction safety and health principles as well as place an emphasis on the most hazardous areas using OSHA standards and regulations as a guideline. (Free study guides and handbook will be given)

Although OSHA 30 hour training was originally more appropriate for supervisors, the induction of local law 196 has made this class a popular selection for most construction workers. Students will learn to locate and identify OSHA standards in 29 CFR, identify causes of accidents and fatalities in hazardous areas within the worksite while providing abatement technique suggestions for these hazards, and learn to understand most construction processes, materials, and equipment.

OSHA Training NYC DOB Requirement (Local law 196)

Local law 196 introduced new regulations for demolition and construction workers employed in the 5 boroughs that will require them to have a specific amount of training. Workers will be required to have a minimum of 30 Hours of training and supervisors will be required to have a minimum of 62 hours of training by December 1st, 2019. In addition to the required amount of training individuals will also need to acquire the appropriate Site Safety Training (SST) card to prove they have completed the necessary training.
