Why the winter months are especially dangerous for construction workers

Even when weather conditions are ideal, the job of a construction worker is dangerous. Add in high winds, bone-chilling temperatures, snow, sleet and ice and the risk of a construction worker suffering injury or death increase exponentially.

How to ensure a construction contractor meets safety and work standards

For individuals who work in the construction industry, safety is paramount. Despite being one of the most-regulated of all industries and subject to the direct oversight and inspection by city, state and federal agencies, every year thousands of U.S. construction workers are injured and killed on the job.

Why New York City's scaffold law is so important

In this blog, we frequently discuss the many dangers that construction workers in New York City face on a daily basis. Among the most serious and prevalent dangers posed to construction workers are those associated with working atop scaffolding structures.
