From scaffolds and surfaces walked on to heavy equipment such as bulldozers, backhoes and cranes and hand tools, equipment at a construction site can be dangerous. That is why it is essential that owners and contractors provide proper equipment and a safe workplace for workers in the construction field.
Because construction sites can be so dangerous, New York State provides specific laws such as New York Labor Law § 200, Labor Law § 240, Labor Law § 241 along with regulations applying to many aspects of construction areas to prevent construction site injuries.
Safe employers can be a joy to work for. However, there are many owners, contractors and sub-contractors who cut corners, fail to provide required safety equipment or don’t maintain construction equipment properly, leading to serious injury and even death.
