If you are working in the NYC construction industry, you are most likely aware of Local Law 196 requiring builders and supervisors to complete a specified number of training courses to get a SST card. Able Safety Consulting, as a training provider, is mindful of the amount of time that builders in construction must put aside to complete the required training courses and how difficult this could be to the average worker. As there is no way to avoid the training itself, Able Safety Consulting made SST online courses more convenient.
Able Safety has started rolling out proctored SST online training courses. With few to none of the required training courses currently being offered online, we are sure that workers will welcome the opportunity to save time and complete these SST training courses entirely online at their convenience. Our Site Safety online courses are available on all platforms including desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
Able Safety Consulting has gone to great lengths to ensure our learning management system is compliant with the New York City Department of Buildings regulations. Through the use of a biometric authentication system (IDABLE), workers will use a mix of facial recognition, emotion detection, and voice recognition to verify their identity throughout the training course.
