New York City mayor signs controversial worker training bill
from Construction Dive
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law Monday Intro 1447, a divisive measure that requires construction workers in New York City to undergo at least 40 hours of safety training, according to the
New York Daily News
. The new law requires workers to complete an Occupational Safety and Health Administration-approved 10-hour safety course or its equivalent by March 2018 and the remainder of training hours by December 2018. If the city's Department of Buildings determines there are not enough training centers to meet demand, then the deadline will be pushed back to December 2020.
