Ladder Safety On Construction Site In New York City Faqs

While multiple factors play a role in construction site ladder accidents, two of the most common ones involve poor placement of the ladder and workers reaching away for tools and materials.

What Are The Four Warehouse Dangers At Work

forklift accident lawyer

Warehouses are large buildings that store "things" such as raw materials, machine or device components, and finished goods for distribution to retailers. They often become busy and even frenetic places during peak demand periods of the year. This places a lot of pressure on their workers to move products rapidly explains one of New York work accident lawyers at the F&A injury law firm. Unfortunately, some warehouse managers solve this by compromising safety as well as pushing their workers too hard and/or making them work long shifts. A warehouse full of rushed people on foot moving among racing forklifts through...

construction-worker-lawyer

Construction companies have a duty to provide proper safety training to all their workers so that serious injuries, illnesses, and deaths can be minimized.  Although larger construction site supervisors may hire outside consultants to conduct their training sessions, most moderate-sized and smaller companies create their own programs. Fortunately, OSHA (Occupational and Safety Health Administration), NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and other government groups publish online training guidelines and standards. Here is a brief look at key factors that construction companies often consider when trying to design their own safety programs. Of course, responsible employers should already be providing...

Useful Tips for Evaluating Safety on Your NYC Construction Site Job

construction-site-lawyer-new-york-city

Far too often, New York City construction workers must tell their project supervisors and managers when basic safety standards are not being met. Although this places an unfair burden on workers eager to keep their jobs, alerting supervisors to serious OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) violations can help greatly reduce injuries and save lives. During daily or weekly construction site training sessions or meetings, supervisors have a duty to remind all workers of the most common safety violations – and provide further learning material by placing OSHA safety posters near check-in areas (or timeclocks) and locker areas. All construction workers (and...

New York Construction Accident Lawyers Discuss Workplace Amputations

Construction Accident Waiting to Happen

Far too often, hardworking men and women suffer severe amputation injuries while carefully handling their daily jobs. While most of these cases are addressed by our state’s workers compensation system – others may still justify the filing of a separate civil action against the employer. If you’ve suffered any type of workplace amputation, you need to recover for all past medical expenses, pain, and suffering – as well as all past and future, lost earnings. How Common Are Workplace Amputation Injuries? OSHA (the Occupational Safety & Health Administration) reports that during 2015, workers suffered 10,388 severe injuries. Of that total, 7,636 led...

construction-lawyer-nyc

Whenever construction workers face greater safety risks, New York City Council members often engage in questionable debates that fail to aggressively address key problems. After Councilman Jumaane D. Williams proposed new safety training and other changes back in January of 2017, his suggestions were put aside while other matters received greater attention. It was not until additional crises took place that decisive action was taken to explain NYC construction site accident attorneys at the F&A injury law firm. More Deaths Precipitated a Push Forward Finally, after two Manhattan construction workers died on the same day in September 2017, the safety training proposals...

nyc-construction-accident-lawyers

Although many new NYC healthcare construction projects are bringing critically needed jobs during the pandemic, safety guidelines must still be closely followed to limit accidents. Between 2020 and 2023, NYC boroughs (except for Staten Island) should experience a thirty-eight percent (38%) increase in healthcare sector construction, costing about $9.4 billion. That number reflects a slight increase over the $6.8 billion the city spent between 2016 and 2019. Many of the new buildings will be constructed in the Bronx and Brooklyn. All OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) officials and construction site managers must keep enforcing all basic safety measures – while...
