Site Safety Plans Mandatory on All Work Scopes Requiring a Registered Construction Superintendent

Effective November 6, 2017, all jobs requiring a Registered Construction Superintendent (CS) will now also require a Site Safety Plan (SSP) as per Local Law 81 of 2017. Currently, only Major Buildings require a Site Safety Plan.

All SSPs must be in compliance with Article 104 (Construction Documents) and Article 110 (Site Safety Plan) of Title 28 of the New York City Administrative Code, in addition to the Minimum Content of Site Safety Plan Submissions Industry Notice.

SSPs for jobs requiring a CS do not need to be submitted to the Department for review and approval. Instead, the SSP must be kept on site at all times and available upon request until all work is completed and signed off.

The preparer of the plan must sign and date the plan (and any revisions to the plan). All revisions to the SSP made subsequent to the start of the project must be kept on site with revisions clearly highlighted. Failure to have an adequate and readily available SSP on site may result in a full stop work order and/or the issuance of a Summons.

NOTE: This requirement is not retroactive to jobs initially permitted prior to the effective date of this new SSP requirement.
