    TRYING TO MAKE IT SAFER TO DO A DANGEROUS JOB - By Jillian Jonas, City Limits, NYC
    Louis Coletti, president of the Building Trades Employers' Association – which held an emergency summit Jan. 23 on concrete-pouring procedures after the Trump death – says he'd like to see something started that's similar to the police department's COMPSTAT program where “you target the resources where the problem is.”

    “There’s a different type of developer … a new cadre of developers taking advantage of the New York market," Coletti said. "It’s a very different phenomenon than anything we’ve dealt with before.”

    “The only way it's [going to improve] is more money set aside for safety people and building inspectors,” agreed Sal Zarzana, president and business manager of Carpenters Local Union 926.
