In our SAFETY Updates series we’ll be sharing important revisions to NYCDOB’s Chapter 33 Construction Code – Safeguards During Construction or Demolition

BC 3301.13.7– Duties of Construction Superintendents

The existing code provided for exceptions to the construction superintendent’s presence on site. Previously, the construction superintendent did not have to be on site to use the exterior hoist to transport personnel only. The interior hoist in a fully enclosed building could be used to transport material. The revision allows the interior hoist to be used to transport both material and personnel. This was just a cleanup. The previous code probably intended this anyway.
