Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws

N.Y. LAB. LAW § 240 : NY Code – Section 240: Scaffolding and other devices for use of employees

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. As your attorneys, we can explain your construction area fall area fall options in detail. 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.
