Required courses to earn SST card

Under Local Law 196 in New York City, certain construction and demolition workers are required to hold SST cards as official proof that they have completed the necessary hours of DOB-approved site safety training.

We offer accredited and DOB-approved training courses as well as SST card applications for both new and renewal cards. Before issuing an SST card, Gallagher Bassett verifies all training hours completed to ensure that a worker or supervisor meets the requirements set forth under Local Law 196 and the New York City DOB site safety training curriculum.


Safety supplies and PPE

It takes the right gear to keep your workers protected on construction sites and workplaces. We offer access to the essential safety supplies and equipment required to assist clients in the management of safe construction projects, including personal protective equipment (PPE).
