Was Brooklyn construction worker's fall from safety violations?

Even though working in construction is inherently more dangerous than working in, say, a Midtown office building, it is not unreasonable for construction workers to expect for their employers to keep them safe. This means that employers need to have sufficient training, safety equipment and be in compliance with safety codes. With the very real risk of danger associated with construction work, employers cannot be lax with their own safety procedures.

Construction accidents rate high among Latinos in New York

Construction can be dangerous work, with 75 workers per year being killed in accidents in the state of New York alone. However, recent studies have shown that workers of Hispanic descent are more likely to die in construction accidents than workers of any other ethnic group. A report prepared by the Center for Popular Democracy shows that Latinos account for 74% of construction fatalities.

Why New York's scaffold law is important for construction workers

Construction workers in New York have some of the most dangerous jobs. They are expected to work with large machinery, heavy equipment and at soaring heights. It's not hard to imagine how a worker could become injured on a construction site.

Construction workers here in New York expect that their employers will provide them with safe working conditions and, in the event of injury, will provide them with compensation to cover medical costs and lost wages. But when a construction site is considered illegal, workers might start to wonder if there are other laws that the employer might be violating, like having workers’ compensation insurance. This might cause them to wonder what they should do if they are injured and in a similar predicament.
