New York Legislature Passes Bill to Create Construction Fatality Registry

New York lawmakers have passed a bill that would create a statewide registry of workplace fatalities in construction. The measure is now in front of Gov. Andrew Cuomo awaiting a signature.

The bill – SB 1302 – would establish a public registry of construction fatalities and require construction contractors to record information related to all incidents in which workers suffer fatal injuries. The bill defines a “worker” as any employee, contractor, subcontractor, or independent contractor, as well as temporary or contingency workers, interns, and volunteers.

As reported by Business Insurance, SB 1302 passed the state Senate and state Assembly with an overwhelming majority vote. If signed by Gov. Cuomo, the law would take effect immediately.
