Construction site safety has long been a problem in New York City and following the deaths of two construction workers Thursday, lawmakers are poised to pass new legislation requiring stricter safety training. After several attempts to pass stronger safety rules, the City Council appears likely to pass a bill requiring workers to take at least 40 hours of training by 2020. But critics have long said that the requirements are too stringent, and it is unfeasible to train tens of thousands of workers in that timeframe. On top of that, according to Crain's New York Business reporter Joe Anuto, this is the first bill of it's kind in the country. "They're creating this program from whole cloth," Anuto said. "No city in the country has a program quite like this. There's really no standards to go off of." For more, listen to the full interview with WNYC's Jami Floyd.
