A Local Law to amend the New York city building code, in relation to posting the number of workers present at a construction site

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section BC 3310 of the New York city building code, as amended by local law number 141 for the year 2013, is amended by adding a new section 3310.12 to read as follows:

3310.12 Required Signs. At the site of construction of a major building, a sign shall be posted indicating the number of workers present at the worksite, and shall be updated regularly to accurately reflect such number. Such sign shall be posted on each perimeter fronting a public thoroughfare at a height of no more than 12 feet (3658 mm) above the ground, with such distance measured from the ground to the top of the sign.

 

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of buildings may take such measures as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, prior to its effective date.
