SITE SAFETY PLANS:
Site Safety Plans are required for construction, demolition and major alterations of the façade on major buildings. No work permit shall be issued for the construction or demolition of major buildings, or for alteration of the facade of a major building when a sidewalk shed is required until a site safety plan that meets the requirements of chapter 1 of Title 28 of Administration Code has been approved by the Department of Buildings.
1- A site safety plan and site safety program is not required for the alteration of the facade of a major building between 10 and 14 stories in height.
2- A site safety plan and site safety program is not required for partial demolition operation in major buildings where the partial demolition operation is limited to to the interior components of the building and where mechanical demolition equipment, other than handheld devices, are not used.
A site safety plan is a communication tool between subcontractors and main contractors and should be completed before starting a construction project. EcoSafety Consultants can also provide approved Site Safety Plans from the DOB BEST SQUAD.
