Injury Lawyer Serving the Poughkeepsie and Wappingers Falls Areas
Statistically, more construction workers are injured in falls from scaffolding and ladders than any other type of accident. The dangers of working at an elevated height are so prevalent that the New York Committee on Occupational Safety and Health has written a special Section 240 of the workplace safety code, specifically to regulate workplace safety related to scaffolding and fall injuries.
Property owners and general contractors are responsible for ensuring the job site property is prepared for the proper and safe construction of scaffolding, ladders and work platforms necessary for safe use. This includes special safety devices such as railings of proper height and strength and harness devices to prevent workers from falling.
If you suffered a construction injury in a scaffold or ladder fall on a job site, talk to Stenger, Diamond & Glass LLP, right away.
