OSHA 10 Online classes no longer accepted in NYC.
You may have heard about the new Local Law 196 of 2017 Construction Safety Training.
Local Law 196 of 2017, previously referred to as Intro. 1447, when fully phased-in in 2019, will require that
Workers at certain job sites receive a minimum of 40 hours of safety training; and Supervisors at certain job sites receive a minimum of 60 hours of safety training.
Workers at job sites that require a Site Safety Plan must be trained. This includes sites that are required to designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager. What’s different about this rule is that OSHA online cards no longer being accepted after October 2017. It doesn’t matter where you took the class or even if you took the class with an OSHA approved company. Online classes are tricky because there are companies out there that are offering the training WITHOUT the card, but they are sneaky so they include the information in their fine print.
Well, it doesn’t matter which company you use because OSHA online classes are no longer accepted in NYC unless:
After October 16, 2017, only in-person training and actively proctored online training will be accepted. Actively proctored online training is: − online training that is taken in a classroom with a proctor; or − online training that at a minimum requires the individual receiving the training: • to attest that they are the individual that received the training and that the training was received without assistance; and • to have their participation monitored at random times to ensure that the individual receiving the training is present for the entirety of the training.
Most on site inspectors simply say,
“OSHA 10 Online classes no longer accepted in NYC.”
OSHA 10 construction training which is instructor led by an authorized OSHA instructor will always be accepted. Remember, in NYC you have to renew your card and training every five years.
OSHA 10 NY provides live authorized instructor led training in the 5 boroughs of NYC. We have weekday, week night, and weekend classes. Groups of 10 or more can be trained on your site for OSHA 10 or 30.
