Scaffolding is an integral part of almost every construction project. Workers have to put immense faith in the integrity of the scaffolding they work on. The dangers associated with scaffolding include:
- Portions of scaffolding falling and striking workers
- Ice on scaffolding (causing slip and falls or falling on people below)
- Debris on scaffolding (causing slip and falls or falling on people below)
New York State Labor Law Section 240 deals specifically with scaffolding and Subsection 1 states that it is a building owner who is responsible for the safety of workers on scaffolding and that the building owner is responsible for any injuries those workers suffer because of the scaffolding.
