Overview & Objectives
A Site Safety Plan (SSP) is essential to promoting a safe and healthy work environment on construction sites. Workers and supervisors need to understand why site safety plans are necessary for worksite safety, critical for successful communication, and crucial to preventing hazards. In New York City, Local Law 196 of 2017 (LL196) requires that workers and supervisors receive safety training if their sites 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 Site Safety Plan (SSP) is an awareness-level online course designed to help you as you work towards obtaining a Site Safety Training Card (SST). It provides the knowledge, skills, tools, example steps, requirements, and resources you need to comprehend a site safety plan.

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
