Don’t wait until you’re thrown off a job site to learn about SST Cards!


You can think of them as the new OSHA cards for NYC. And we've even heard them referred to as the "OSHA 40", but however you want to call them - make sure you find out if you need them for yourself and your workers before it's too late!


If you spend any time on large construction sites: as a worker, as a subcontractor, or a small business employee providing work – you most likely need an SST worker card. The Department of Buildings will check all safety training credentials of workers on-site – don’t risk getting thrown off and losing your paycheck.


I’m a construction worker; do I need an SST Card?


Yes, you need an SST card if you are a construction worker at a site that is required to designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager. If you are a worker, you need 40 hours of training. If you are a supervisor, which includes Construction Superintendents, Site Safety Coordinators, Site Safety Managers, Concrete Safety Managers, and competent persons, you need 62 hours of training.


I work on big jobs, but my company is small, and we only do a small part of the overall project. Do I need an SST card?


Yes. Workers and supervisors at job sites that are required to designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager must be trained, regardless of company size.


I’m a subcontractor. Do I need an SST Card?


Yes. Workers and supervisors at job sites that are required to designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager must be trained, regardless of whether they are the general contractor or a subcontractor.
