Unsafe Work Site Hazards

Construction sites are, by their very nature, dangerous places in which to work. However, with proper safeguards and care, they can be kept relatively safe for workers. Unfortunately, in some cases, those responsible for ensuring the safety of construction work sites fail to adequately fulfill their duties, placing constructions workers and other at risk of suffering a serious accident or injury as a result.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a construction accident caused by an unsafe work site, New York labor law section 241-6 may entitle you to pursue compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve had to endure. Contact a New York unsafe work site attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP, today at 866-LAWS-USA to speak with a member of our legal team who is well-versed in these laws.

Common Unsafe Work Site Hazards

There are a number of different ways in which a construction site can be made unsafe for workers. Some of the most common of these include the following:

  • Lack of guardrails
  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Scattered debris on walking surfaces
  • Lack of vehicle pathways

These and other common construction site hazards can create an unsafe work environment, significantly increasing the likelihood of a dangerous accident occurring. Because section 241-6 states that all construction sites must be kept safe for workers, property owners and contractors who fail to provide these safe environments may be held legally responsible for their negligence.
