Definition: The Department issues a Stop Work Order (SWO) when inspectors determine a site has unsafe work or conditions. SWOs are issued to protect workers, residents, the public, and buildings and properties. When DOB halts work, the SWO Coordinator contacts the project executive or construction manager to outline the necessary steps to correct the safety hazard
There are two types of Stop Work Orders:
- Full – all work is prohibited, excluding remedial work required to make the site safe.
- Partial – a partial SWO does not stop all work on a site: certain work or work in a particular area is prohibited.
