New York City builds up — not out. A huge portion of construction work is performed at lofty heights, leaving those working near the ground vulnerable to objects falling from above. Regardless of whether danger comes in the form of crumbling debris or dropped tools, falling objects reach the ground at high speeds and leave construction workers exposed to serious injury or death.
Some of the falling objects commonly causing serious injuries or wrongful death include:
- Bricks, cinder blocks and crumbling facade
- Support beams
- Scaffolding, railing and planks
- Wires and cables
- Metal objects such as pipes, fittings, duct work and sheet metal
- Handheld tools
