Hundreds of people gathered on Tuesday, February 11 to push for changes to the century-old New York Scaffold Law, an online report from CBS revealed.
The New York Scaffold Law holds property owners and contractors fully accountable for any elevation-related accidents on construction sites. Those looking to amend the bill want to consider the negligence of all the parties involved in the accident, including the worker. If this reform is passed, the incident will be checked for any acts of negligence on the worker’s part, including intoxication and breach of safety measures.
