Report: Immigrant construction workers are often the most at risk

A few months ago, we told you about a report issued by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH) that found that construction deaths in New York hit a 14-year high in 2016. This annual report, which was aptly titled Deadly Skyline, provided an in-depth analysis on construction fatalities throughout the state.

"Fatal Four" still cause more than 60% of construction deaths

Every year, the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) issues its Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Summary, a report dedicated to examining the number of fatal work injuries suffered in a number of industries, including construction.

BLS Report: Workplace and construction deaths are on the rise

Last month, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) issued its Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Summary for 2016. One of the most alarming statistics in this report is that there were 5,190 fatal work injuries record in the U.S. that year, of which, 4,693 were in the private sector.

Scaffolding accident in lower Manhattan leaves several injured

On Sunday, several New Yorkers were injured after a scaffolding collapse in lower Manhattan. Fortunately, there were dozens of people nearby that pitched in to help free those trapped under the debris. The FDNY reports that all five of those injured were transported to Bellevue -- although many were surprised that there were not more people injured.
