New York Inadequate Training Lawyers
Working on a construction site brings with it a unique set of dangers that are inherent to the job and requires a much higher level of care and diligence with regard to safety issues than most other professions in order for workers to avoid injury in the course of completing their duties. Simply paying attention is not enough to ensure safety on a construction job site, however, as complex machinery and dangerous equipment require special training for safe operation and can easily cause serious injury when mishandled.
When contractors fail to provide the necessary safety training to protect their employees, their negligence often leads to serious injuries that can result in enormous medical bills and financial distress. If you have suffered an injury that could have been prevented by the reasonable actions of your employer at a construction site, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

Common Injuries Caused by Lack of Training
Failure to provide necessary job and safety training to construction employees is highly dangerous and can lead to serious injuries to those operating equipment without training, as well as those around them. The following are a few examples of common injuries sustained as a result of a lack of safety training:
- Cutting injuries sustained while using saws, jigs, and other sharp equipment
- Collisions and crushing injuries resulting from the improper operation of motor vehicle equipment
- Eye injuries due to improper use of sawing and welding equipment
- Unsafe handling of hazardous materials
Under section 241-6 of the New York labor code, the contractor in control of the site is responsible for providing a safe construction site and is unable to delegate this duty, making them responsible for the proper safety training of all employees.
