As buffalo is experiencing an economic and construction boom, the demand for construction workers has increased. The construction of new high rise buildings creates the need for ladders and scaffolds to complete necessary tasks. Scaffolds range from simple platforms to complex structions. The dangerous conditions of an already hard job are made worse when constructions workers are required to use scaffolds and ladders.
New York State Statute Labor Law Section 2140, also known as the “Scaffold Law,” was created to protect those who work at elevated heights because as anyone who does construction knows, this type of work can be very dangerous. Often enough, construction workers have very little say in how a job can be safely performed or what types of safety devices are available on the job.
