Many workers, including construction site workers, painters, electricians, bricklayers, sheet metal workers, window washers and others, suffer injuries at work because of hazards of working at heights such as on ladders, scaffolds, etc., or being exposed to certain conditions or hazards.
New York law provides unique rights to workers under certain circumstances depending on the work being done and other factors by requiring protective measures and/or equipment to provide a safe place to work.
Some people injured at work sites may recover more than just workers compensation for their injuries if protected by these work site laws.
