NEW YORK'S LABOR LAW § 240 AND SCAFFOLD ACCIDENTS

New York's scaffold law, Labor Law § 240, provides workers with a high level of protection against elevation-related hazards by placing the ultimate responsibility for safety practices on contractors and property owners. According to the law, the contractor or property owner is responsible for constructing and equipping a scaffold so that it meets all safety requirements. If the scaffold is deficient in any way, and a worker is injured in a fall, the owner or contractor is absolutely liable for the worker's injuries.
