SLIPS AND FALLS ON A CONSTRUCTION SITE
When a construction worker performs his or her job, it is important that he or she be able to walk safely on the job site. New York law requires that all floors, walkways, scaffolds, platforms, and other elevated work surfaces be free of slippery conditions such as ice, snow, water, grease, and other substances that can cause workers to slip and lose their balance.
When a worker slips and falls due to failure to remove, sand, cover, or provide a safe base from slippery substances, the injured worker can establish a claim to obtain fair compensation for his or her injuries.
TRIP AND FALL AT A CONSTRUCTION SITE
New York law and regulations require that all walkways and work areas be kept free of tripping hazards, including debris and other objects. If tripping hazards are not removed from walkways and work areas, workers can fall and cause serious injuries. The requirement that walkways and work areas remain free of tripping hazards ensures that work can be performed safely throughout the job site.
When a worker falls due to a failure to properly maintain safe conditions and walkways free of tripping hazards, the injured worker can establish a claim to obtain fair compensation for his or her injuries.
