By March 1, 2018, permit holders will be required to ensure that all construction and demolition workers and subcontractors employed or engaged at a permitted site have completed an OSHA 10-hour training course, an OSHA 30-hour training course, or a 100-hour program of OSHA training. (Date may be pushed back)
Training will be verified using a “card” system similar to OSHA’s “10-Hour Card” system. SST cards will be issued to workers who complete OSHA 10-hour, 30-hour, or 100-hour programs. For 10-hour and 30-hour training, workers will be required to complete additional “SST credits” to earn the card.
The legislation creates some variants of the SST card:
- A Temporary SST card can be issued to a new entrant to the construction or demolition workforce who completes an OSHA 10-hour training course, and expires after 6 months.
- An SST Supervisor Card can be issued to SST card holders who complete an OSHA 30-hour training course.
- In addition, a Limited SST Card may be issued before the final compliance date in the legislation.
