Why are there so many construction accidents and injuries in New York City?

Consistently ranked by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as one of the most dangerous professions, the many dangers faced by construction laborers cannot be overstated. So far this year, New York City's Department of Buildings details that there have been an estimated 400 injuries reported by construction workers and at least six deaths. The number of injuries is especially noteworthy considering that is represents nearly a 68 percent increase over the 237 reported injuries during 2014.

As we've noted in previous blog posts, New York City is in the midst of a building boom. From commercial skyscrapers and parking ramps to high-end hotels and residential properties, during 2014 alone, the city's Buildings Department issued roughly 142,000 building permits, which represents a nearly 20 percent jump in just three years.
