As you look around Long Island and New York City, one can see an increase in the remodeling and new construction of all types of office buildings, shopping centers, schools, churches and other places of worship, hospital and medical centers, parking garages, mass transit centers and various types of infrastructure projects. These diverse types of construction projects often require the use of scaffolds such as Mobile Scaffolds, Baker Scaffold, Stationary Scaffolds, special types of scaffolds, Pipe Scaffolds, Suspended or Swinging Scaffolds, Pipe Scaffolds, Boatswains’s Chairs, and Single-Point Scaffolds, different types of elevated platforms, ladders, and of course related safety equipment, which, if not utilized properly, often provides opportunities for construction workers and others around the work area to get seriously injured, and sometimes unfortunately these accidents result in wrongful death.
The Long Island and NYC construction industry employs tens of thousands of laborers, trades people, engineers, and others who often work from scaffolds and ladders. Others that use these elevated platforms include welders, painters, electrical pole workers, carpenters, electricians, heavy equipment operators, pipe-fitters, roofers and siding installers, and structural steel and iron workers. These construction workers and contractors, and those responsible for supervising them on the job site, are required to acquire permits, licenses, and safety training, while adhering to required safety rules and regulations for construction work area sites, including those regulations set forth in New York Labor Law Section 240, which are designed to protect construction workers from being seriously injured while working on elevated platforms, scaffolds and ladders from heights, which safety laws if not properly implemented, often result in construction worker physical injury, including catastrophic brain, neck, spinal cord, and other debilitating injuries, and unfortunately, even death.
