Accident Prevention Tops Agenda of New York City Construction Safety Week

With three construction worker fatalities already in 2011, it is very important that the Department of Buildings addresses New York construction accident attorneys' concerns about the deteriorating state of construction safety in the city. In a nod to these concerns, the New York City Department of Buildings recently posted the agenda for this year's annual Construction Safety Week on its website. The Annual Construction Safety Week will last from 25 April to 29 April. According to the agenda, the event is likely to be marked by extensive discussions on accident prevention, safe scaffolding and demolition and community partnerships.
