OSHA Safety Training as Required by Local Law 196

As of September, 2020 OSHA is requiring 40 hours of instruction on potentially hazardous activity and the appropriate safety training from their employer, as defined in OSHA standards. Vertical Systems Analysis (VSA) is an authorized OSHA trainer. Through the VSA training program, elevator workers can attend 10-hour or 40-hour classes. The 10-hour class is intended to provide workers with awareness of common job-related safety and health hazards while the 40-hour class is more appropriate for supervisors or workers with some safety responsibility.

Classes can be held at VSA's offices
