Local Law 196, mandating minimum safety training requirements for workers on construction sites in New York City was enacted in 2017 and was intended to be phased in between March 1, 2018 and December 1, 2018. Due to limited availability of training resources and the tremendous amount of construction workers needing training, its implementation was delayed several times. DDay for Local Law 196 of 2017 is almost upon us: December 1, 2019 marks the official implementation and enforceability of the law. All contractors, subcontractors, specialty trade contractors and others providing labor to a project site in New York City as well as all developers and project owners should understand and be familiar with its requirements and the penalties that may be imposed for failing to comply.
