Permissible noise exposure limits frequently dismissed at NYC construction sites

From an outsider's perspective, the average New York City construction site can appear incredibly chaotic. Most construction sites are filled with workers who are operating heavy equipment, working atop scaffolding and using tools like jackhammers and saws. Adding to the apparent chaos, construction sites are also often incredibly loud and filled with sounds of rumbling, banging, clanging, beeping and crashing.

Construction employers have duty to protect against trench cave ins

In previous blog posts, we've discussed the many dangers that construction workers who work atop scaffolding, ladders and other heights face. In fact the Occupational Safety and Health Administration consistently reports that, among construction workers, fall-related accidents are the leading cause of injury and death. Recently, the criminal indictments of two construction managers and their companies in New York City also shed light on the many dangers facing construction workers who work on excavation and trenching projects.

Road work sites can be dangerous places

Construction workers can be at the mercy of a lot of different things when they are working on a road construction project. Such things include: how attentive drivers are being when driving through the work zone, how much care the organizations behind the road construction project are exercising regarding worker safety, how safe other workers at the site are acting and what sort of condition the equipment being used as part of the project is in.

Construction workers especially at risk for suffering heat-related illnesses

New York City has been in the midst of a summer heat wave with air temperatures rising into the 90s and high humidity levels pushing heat indexes in excess of 100 degrees. As city officials urge residents to drink plenty of water, get into air-conditioned buildings and limit outdoor and strenuous activities; it’s been business as usual for many construction workers.

For New York's road construction workers, a day at the office can be deadly

On a daily basis, millions of motor vehicles travel along New York State's highways and roads. It's no wonder therefore, that road construction crews are frequently called upon to fix road defects, perform regular maintenance and construct new roadways. For the men and women who are tasked with helping ensure that New York's roads are safe and navigable, there are many occupational hazards including the risk of suffering injuries in a motor vehicle-related accident.
