Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws
New York provides additional protection for construction area fall workers under several sections of the State Labor Laws. These include: N.Y. LAB. LAW § 200 : NY Code – Section 200: General duty to protect health and safety of employees; enforcement may make a property owner or contractor liable for an injury that occurred as a result of a hazardous condition of which they were aware or should have been aware. Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility.

We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
