Safe Workplace for New York Construction Workers

Construction workers are always in danger at the work site. Falling objects, falls from scaffolds and ladders - all can contribute to injuring a worker.

Although injury and fatality rates in many industry sectors have declined significantly in the twenty-three years since the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) came into existence, this has not been the case for the construction industry. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is a government organization designed to assure the safety and health of America's workers. Specifically, this organization sets and enforces standards regarding workplace safety and health.

Construction is the United States' largest industry and one that has consistently registered high rates of workplace accidents. Construction workers are exposed to more hazards and significant risk of a work-related injuries or fatality because of the nature of the type of work they do. These injuries can be devastating both physically and mentally and should not go uncompensated.

If you are hurt in the course of your employment, you may be entitled to more than simply Worker's Compensation benefits.
