OSHA10

10-Hour OSHA Requirement:

NY requires an OSHA 10-Hour Card for all on-site employees on a state construction project with a total project cost of $250,000 or more. All employees are required to complete the program prior to beginning work.

Here is information on the OSHA 10 Requirement as outlined by the Department of Labor:
Requirements for OSHA 10 Compliance
Chapter 282 of the Laws of 2007, codified as Labor Law 220-h took effect on July 18, 2008. 

The statute provides as follows:

The advertised specifications for every contract for public work of $250,000.00 or more must contain a provision requiring that every worker employed in the performance of a public work contract shall be certified as having completed an OSHA 10 safety training course. The clear intent of this provision is to require that all employees of public work contractors, required to be paid prevailing rates, receive such training “prior to the performing any work on the project.”

The Bureau will enforce the statute as follows:

All contractors and sub=contractors must attach a copy of proof of completion of the OSHA 10 course to the first certified payroll submitted to the contracting agency and on each succeeding payroll where any new or additional employee is first listed. Proof of completion may include but is not limited to:
  • Copies of bonafide course completion card (Note: Completion cards do not have an expiration date.)
  • Training roster, attendance record of other documentation from thecertified trainer pending the issuance of the card.
  • Other valid proof

**A certification by the employer attesting that all employees have completed such a course is not sufficient proof that the course has been completed.
