Dear BCA Members:
In our continuing efforts to provide the site safety training and awareness classes necessary to meet the requirements of Local Law 196, the BCA has scheduled a new program designed exclusively for those individuals looking to achieve the 62 hours of training mandated for site safety supervisors. Please note: this program is only open to those individuals who have already completed the 30 hour OSHA, 2 hour drug and alcohol awareness and either the 8 hour fall prevention or 8 hour Chapter 33 site safety refresher. In other words, you must already have completed a minimum of 40 hours of training to be eligible.
Completion of this program will put you over the 62 hour requirement for site safety supervisor training well before the June 1, 2019 deadline. You must attend all three days. The cost for the program is $200.00. If you attend all three days and complete the program, your fee will be refunded. If you don’t show up, no refund.
The program is as follows:
All classes will be located at: United Select Risk Office – 42 Broadway – 3rd Floor – New York, NY 10004
Day 1 March 6, 2019: 7 hours of training (8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.)

Day 2 March 8, 2019: 8 hours of training (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
