In New York City, the construction industry is booming with countless new projects underway on nearly every block. While good for the economy, it can present many hazards for construction workers. Along with the new buildings comes new timelines in which to finish the project. Unfortunately, this can often result in contractors pushing workers to beat unrealistic deadlines and working faster than they should. When companies put deadlines over safety, serious accidents can occur.
Construction workers are supposed to be equipped with adequate safety gear, but injuries can still happen. Even worse is when safety equipment isn’t provided.
