White Plains Contractor Cited For Unsafe Work Conditions

A contractor at a White Plains school has been cited by OSHA for unsafe work conditions. OSHA stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is the federal agency that ensures that construction sites (and all other places of employment) are maintained in a safe condition. Apparently, according to the Journal News, the contractor, Piazza Brothers, was cited for fall protection violations.  In the construction context, fall protection means ladders and scaffolds and sometimes lanyards and harnesses.  Under the law in New York, an employer is absolutely liable if he fails to provide a safe and proper fall protection device.  So, if the employer provides a six foot a-frame ladder when an extension ladder is required, and you fall, the employer violated the law and will be held accountable.  Piazza Brothers is a general contractor whose projects have included office buildings, correctional facilities and schools, according to its website. OSHA violations can range from the failure to ensure that workers are wearing proper safety gear to failing to provide safe ladders and scaffolding. In most of our construction accident cases, there almost is always an OSHA violation.

If you work in conditions that you think are unsafe, call OSHA at 1.800.321.OSHA. Or, you can go here and make an anonomous complaint online. You can also check out their website at www.osha.gov for some additional help.

Of course, StolzenbergCortelli LLP is always available to help with any questions you have. Feel free to call us anytime, day or night.
