What is the Construction Workplace Safety Law?

Working in construction is dangerous, especially when you are working at a high elevation. Scaffolding accidents can cause a variety of injuries which can be severe enough to limit your ability to work. New York State Labor Laws protect construction workers on jobsites and give them options if they are injured in accidents like these. Labor Law 240, commonly known as the Construction Workplace Safety Law or the Scaffolding Law, is one of these protections. The Construction Workplace Safety Law has special requirements in place to protect workers who are on scaffolds and other devices at a height, as well as provisions for workers who are injured in those situations.
