New York City SST – General Elective: 1-Hour Stairways And Ladders

  • Level: Introductory
  • Duration: 60 minutes
  • Location: Online or In-Person

Overview & Objectives

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), an estimated 25,000 injuries and up to 36 fatalities occur annually as a result of falls on stairways and ladders used in construction. Understanding how to avoid accidents on stairways and ladders is essential for everyone at the worksite. 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 – 1-Hour Stairways and Ladders is an awareness-level online course created especially for construction workers and supervisors preparing to earn a Site Safety Training Card (SST). It focuses on terms and definitions, temporary stairs, ladder types, safe use, and inspection.

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
