Have you been injured in a CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENT?

Construction workers face some of the most dangerous conditions of any industry in the United States. New York’s Labor Laws 240 and 241 outline specific safety requirements and other regulations designed to ensure the safety of every worker on the job site. Owners, general contractors and subcontractors have a responsibility to comply with these rules.

Failure to do so places everyone at risk.

Ladder/Scaffold Incident

It is not uncommon for these accidents to result in severe or permanent injuries, like broken bones and fractures, back and neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and even death.

Vertical Passage

Workers who are injured because of a general contractor's failure to provide vertical passage (such as ladders, stairways and elevators between levels of a construction site) have the right to receive fair compensation.

Uncovered Holes & Trench Collapse

Trench collapses, or cave-ins, pose the greatest risk to workers’ lives. When done safely, trenching operations can reduce worker exposure to other potential hazards include falls, falling loads, hazardous atmospheres, and incidents involving mobile equipment.

Tripping/Slipping Hazard

​People must be able to move around the workplace safely. Slips, trips and falls are among the most common causes of accidents and injury at work.

Falling Debris

Construction debris, tools, supplies, loose tiles, and other objects dropped from a height can cause severe injuries as well as wrongful death. According to OSHA, getting struck by a falling object is the industry’s second leading cause of fatal accidents.

Crane Accidents

Crane accidents are among the more common accidents that occur at a construction site. Several crane operators are seriously injured or killed on the job each year.

Defective Equipment/Power Tools

Thousands of people are rushed to emergency rooms every year as a result of power tool injuries, many of whom suffered accidents on the job. A construction worker can suffer amputation if electrical equipment is unguarded or poorly maintained, while a defective hand tool can cause broken bones or the loss of an eye.

Electrical Injuries

Contact with or exposure to electric current accounted for 2.6% of all workplace fatalities. Exposure to electric current maintained its position as sixth most common type of workplace fatality.

Local 3/Magna Comp

Most Local 3 electricians know MagnaComp as the plan that they must deal with for New York State Workers’ Compensation benefits. This plan is the Electrical Employees Self Insured Safety Plan, and is also known as MagnaCare Medical Management.
