Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 3301.11.4 of chapter 33 of the New York city building code, as added by local law 206 for the year 2017, is amended to read as follows:

3301.11.4 Site safety orientation and refresher content. Site safety orientations and refreshers required by this section shall include a review of safety procedures at such site and any hazardous activities to be performed at such site. In addition, information pertaining to the site safety training required by Section 3321 shall be made available to each worker in the designated citywide languages, as such term is defined in Section 23-1101 of the Administrative Code, and any other language as may be required by rule of the department, in a form and manner established by the department.

 

§ 2. Section 4 of a local law for the year 2019 amending the administrative code of the city of New York and the New York city building code, relating to clarifying the requirements for site safety training providers and persons required to obtain site safety training, as proposed in introduction number 720-c for the year 2018, is amended to read as follows:

§ 4. This local law takes effect immediately, and sections [1 and]  2 and 3 are retroactive and deemed to have been in full force and effect as of the date that local law number 196 for the year 2017 took effect.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 30 days after it becomes law; provided, however, that section 2 shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect on the same day as a local law for the year 2019 amending the administrative code of the city of New York and the New York city building code, relating to clarifying the requirements for site safety training providers and persons required to obtain site safety training, as proposed in introduction number 720-c for the year 2018, takes effect. The commissioner of buildings may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
