Defining the Specs: What Info Should a Site Safety ID Card Contain?

Updated: Jan 22, 2020

NYC DOB approved course providers are authorized to issue a Site Safety Training (SST) Card to any individual who completes the DOB required courses regardless of where the course was taken. According to the DOB, the design and information for any SST ID card is uniform.

DOB recommends that the cards are wallet-sized and contain specific information and security features:

FRONT OF CARD should include:

  1. A banner across the card indicating that it is a New York City Site Safety Training Identification Card.

  2. Document security features designed to deter forgery and counterfeiting such as a QR code.

  3. A unique identification card number which cannot be the person’s Social Security Number.

  4. The person’s photograph.

  5. The name and signature of the card holder.

BACK OF CARD should include:

  1. The date of course completion and indication of the card’s category: temporary, limited, site safety, or site safety supervisor.

  2. The expiration date of the card.

  3. The name, address and phone number of the course provider; the trainer’s ID number.

  4. A summary description of the type of training and credit hours completed.

  5. A course provider logo – optional but recommended.
