Construction deaths are up, so why are OSHA fines so low?

As we've discussed in recent months, a damning report from the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) has found some distressing - and deadly - trends in the construction industry in New York. According to the report, entitled Deadly Skyline, New York construction fatalities have increased by almost 30 percent in the last five years, with a record-breaking 71 construction worker deaths reported in 2016 alone.

Scaffolding law survives another legislative session

Despite repeated attacks, New York’s Scaffolding Law has survived yet another legislative session. In fact, while this law continues to come under fire in the media by some lawmakers and certain “pro-business” groups, not a single bill was introduced this year — let alone passed — that would have eliminated this very important construction safety law.
