A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to site safety managers and coordinators.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 3310 of the New York city building code, as added by local law number 33 for the year 2007, is amended by adding a new section 3310.8.1.1 to read as follows:

3310.8.1.1 Site safety manager or coordinator standpipe inspection responsibilities. The site safety manager or coordinator shall, at a minimum, in accordance with rules promulgated by the department, conduct daily checks to ensure that a standpipe system is available and in a state of readiness at all times for use by fire fighting personnel, by verifying:

1.                     That valves are in place at each story below the construction floor;

2.                     That standpipes are connected to a water source or siamese connection; and

3.                     That siamese hose connections are free from obstruction and are marked by a red light and sign that reads, “Standpipe Siamese Connection.”

The site safety manager or coordinator shall also, in accordance with such rules, conduct weekly checks to verify that no breach exists by visually tracing the standpipe, including risers, cross connections and siamese connections. A record of all such inspections shall be maintained by such site safety manager or coordinator in a log book.

§ 2.  This local law shall take effect immediately.
