Scaffolding Accidents Archives

New York City does not leave scaffolding safety up in the air

If you work construction in New York City, you more than likely spend some time on scaffolding. The law requires the site foreman to provide you with safety equipment, and to properly erect and routinely inspect the scaffold in order to prevent you from falling. Unfortunately, not all construction companies or foremen meet these requirements, which puts your life at risk.

What do OSHA and New York say about scaffolding safety?

Nearly 65 percent of construction workers end up on scaffolds at some point in their careers, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). More than likely, it will not come as a surprise to anyone in the construction business that one of the primary causes of injury for those in the industry is falls from scaffolds, lifts and hoists. Because of the heights involved, injuries are often serious and can cause permanent, life-altering damage.
