construction site accidents

In New York State, construction workers are protected by a “Labor Law”. This law ensures that the area where construction is being performed is safe from known and concealed hazards, and mandates that employers, contractors, subcontractors, property managers, land owners, engineers, and construction managers provide safety measures and equipment for all workers lawfully on the property. The New York State Legislature enacted these laws to cover machinery, scaffolding, demolition, excavation, and other construction work.
