    Scaffolding, Fall Prevention Top the List of Construction Violations in New York, Study Finds - Occupational Hazards
    Joel Shufro, executive director of NYCOSH, a non-profit safety and health educational organization pointed to the study's finding that 1,586 of 5,312 OSHA construction safety violations - nearly one-third - were for violations of the scaffolding and fall prevention standards as a reason to keep the scaffold law.

    'Construction is one of the most dangerous industries and working at heights is one of the most dangerous aspects of construction,' Shufro said. 'OSHA inspection data shows that contractors violate fall prevention regulations on a routine basis. More than 25 construction workers in New York state die in falls each year. Labor Law 240 provides construction contractors with a strong incentive to follow safety regulations and develop programs to prevent falls. Without it, the death toll would certainly be even higher.'
