Staten Island, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2013 -- Construction work is inherently dangerous especially in a city like New York, which contains massive steel structures that are hundreds of feet tall. Contractors are actively looking for ways to enhance safety on jobsites.
In 2012, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) reported that 21 construction workers suffered fatal injuries in New York. This is a sharp increase from the six fatalities reported in 2011. Non-union jobsites accounted for over three quarters of the accidents. Union contractors constantly drill their workers on safety through training and continuing education courses.
Unfortunately, the underground construction industry is growing. Disreputable contractors are hiring untrained labor, cutting corners on materials and not carrying the proper liability insurance. The unskilled laborers are not given safety training and do not have the proper equipment to protect themselves in dangerous situations. In the U.S., working conditions for employees have taken decades to improve but there is still work to be done.
