When is my employer under any obligation to provide safety training?
Construction companies are legally obligated, under Section 241-6 of the New York Labor Code, to create safe construction sites and provide safety training for its employees when it cannot be reasonably expected to avoid an accident and subsequent injury otherwise. Under these circumstances, a lack of proper training would create a hazard both to the under-trained employee and his or her coworkers. As such, any construction company that fails to uphold these standards may be held liable for any resulting accident and injuries.
