Landlord Didn't Have Trained Construction Supervisor on Site
LVT Number: #30850
DOB issued two violation notices to landlord for failing to ensure that on-site workers completed required training. DOB's inspector had found a construction site worker at the building working without OSHA 10-hour, 30-hour, or 100-hour training. Landlord claimed that it didn't know who the named worker was. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $5,000.
Landlord appealed and lost. A construction superintendent, site safety manager, or site safety coordinator was required at the building to ensure that each construction or demolition worker employed or otherwise engaged there had successfully completed OSHA training. Landlord's excuse was insufficient.
