The CDA Unit of the FDNY has begun to enforce the certificate of fitness requirement for the Construction Site Fire Safety Manager. The attached FDNY document details how this is being enforced and what will be done if the CSFSM has not received their certification.
In addition to this bulletin, the FDNY has indicated that in this instance, if the CSFSM provides proof that they are enrolled/scheduled to take this class, or have previously taken awaiting clearance to take the certificate of fitness test, they will be given a 30 “progress” waiver in lieu of a violation.
