Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     Section 1.  Items 18 and 19 of section 28-110.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law 33 of 2007, are amended to read as follows and section 28-110.1 is further amended by adding new items 20 and 21 to read as follows:

18. A copy of the proposed site safety manager or site safety coordinator certificate, as applicable, including the certificate for any alternate site safety manager or site safety coordinator; [and]

19. Such features requiring special sequencing in order to maintain safe conditions with a written description of those sequences[.];

                     20. The site safety plan shall include a statement that prior to performing any work on the project all workers shall have successfully completed, within the previous five calendar years, a ten hour course approved by the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration  in construction industry safety and health, or by the commissioner covering substantially the same material.  Successful completion of such training course shall be evidenced by (a) presentation of a bona fide course completion card, (b) copy of such card, (c) a training roster, attendance record or other documentation from the certified trainer pending the issuance of such card or (d) other valid proof which may be approved by the commissioner.  Such evidence shall be readily available to the commissioner upon request; and

                     21.  A statement that all workers employed on the site will receive a site-specific safety orientation program.  This program shall include a review of any hazardous activities of the job that are relevant to the tasks and activities to be performed.  All workers must attend such a program no later than seven days after commencing their employment.

§2.  This local law shall take effect ninety days from enactment, except that the commissioner of buildings shall promulgate rules and take such other actions necessary for its implementation prior to such effective date.
