Licensed Site Safety Managers (SSM)/Fire Safety Managers (FSM)

Chapter 33 of the New York City Building Code regulates construction operations with regards to the safety of the public and property. Construction and demolition jobs on buildings over 15 stories require a Site Safety Manager on site. We employ a team of experienced Licensed Site Safety Managers and Fire Safety Managers ready to supervise safety of your job.

NYC DOB Building Code outlines the responsibility of the builder/owner, agent, construction manager, or general contractor to designate a site safety manager or coordinator who must be present on a construction or demolition site when required, and who shall be responsible for all site safety requirements of the NYC DOB Chapter 33 "Construction and Demolition". In the event that an alternate manager or coordinator will be acting as the full-time safety manager or coordinator for a period longer than two weeks, the department must be so notified. Any permanent change of site safety manager or coordinator requires immediate notification of the department. No proposed alternate manager or coordinator shall have as his or her primary duty the job of site safety manager or coordinator on any other construction or demolition project.

The FDNY FC Section 1408 now requires a Construction Site Fire Safety Manager (CSFSM) on all New York City projects , as follows: "Where a Site Safety Manager or Site Safety Coordinator is required by the Building Code, the owner shall designate a person to be the Fire Safety Manager for the construction site. The Fire Safety Manager may be the Site Safety Manager or Site Safety Coordinator required by the Building Code. The Fire Safety Manager shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with the requirements of the Fire Code, and the FDNY Rules.  The Fire Safety Manager shall conduct an inspection of the construction site and all fire safety measures on at least a daily basis, and maintain a record of same in a bound book or other approved system of recordkeeping.  The log book or other approved recordkeeping shall be made available for inspection by any representative of the department.  Where fire watch service is provided, the Fire Safety Manager shall be responsible for the general supervision of the fire guards.

A Construction Site Fire Safety Manager shall be present at the construction site at all times when construction, demolition and alteration work is being conducted".
