Overview & Objectives
Promoting a safe and healthy work environment is essential, especially when workers are performing critical, complex, or potentially hazardous tasks. A Pre-Task Safety and Health meeting is necessary for these specific, high-risk tasks. In New York City, Local Law 196 of 2017 (LL196) requires that workers and supervisors receive safety training if their site’s designate a construction supervisor, site safety coordinator, or site safety manager. Once fully phased-in, this law mandates that workers at certain worksites receive 40 hours of safety training and supervisors receive 62 hours of safety training.
NYC SST – 2-Hour Pre-Task Meeting is an awareness-level online course designed especially for construction workers and supervisors preparing to earn a Site Safety Training Card (SST). It provides basic occupational safety and health practices, techniques, regulatory standards, guidance, and best management practices needed for successful pre-task meetings.
NOTICE: This course uses voice authentication. VA courses were developed in conjunction with the NYC Department of Buildings (NYC DOB) to address LL196 online course proctoring requirements. These voice-authenticated courses represent a best practice to ensure the identity of the student by prompting users to verify their voice at random intervals throughout the course. Users must have access to a mobile phone or landline while taking the course to successfully meet this requirement. NYC DOB Provider ID Number: 4T75
