CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION WORKER OSHA WARNINGS!

If you are a construction or demolition worker, and you rig or work on scaffolds or on ladders, or in construction ditches, OSHA has posted a list of the worst hazards you face. Be your own on-site advocate. Make sure that you demand proper safety equipment, and that you work with the very best safety techniques.

Second Avenue Subway now open for business

Calling himself "cautiously optimistic" last December, Governor Andrew Cuomo pressed MTA workers and officials to make the January 1 deadline for the Second Avenue Subway. Public works aren't known for meeting deadlines or budgets, but the Q train was indeed up and running (the N runs at rush hour as well), serving an estimated 200,000 daily riders on the Upper East Side.

Most common safety hazards on the job

Your job is part of who you are. It pays your bills, funds your children's health and welfare, and gives a sense of pride and achievement. It's a fundamental right that, while you're in the assigned location doing your assigned duties, you will be as safe as can be. This is the case in all injuries, whether you work on the docks, in construction, waiting tables or delivering newspapers.

ATTACK ON WORKERS'COMP PERMANENT INJURY BENEFITS

Businesses and their paid lobbyists, lawyers, and politicians are waging all-out war against workers' compensation SCHEDULE LOSS (also known as FINAL ADJUSTMENT) permanency awards for working men and women.

NO SE DEJE ENGAÑAR DE SU JEFE Y LA COMPAÑÍA DE SEGUROS

Algunas veces, cuando un trabajador de la construcción o demolición se lesiona en un andamio defectuoso, o cuando un hoyo se hunde, o un techo o una escalera se derrumba, el supervisor en el sitio, o el propio jefe, le ofrece dinero en efectivo al trabajador para que no presente un caso de compensación de trabajadores o un caso de lesiones personales. Esta oferta algunas veces viene con una promesa de pagar todas las facturas médicas y también una promesa de tender el trabajo abierto para el trabajador. Lo que el jefe nunca te dice es que el valor de su caso puede ser muchas, muchas veces más valioso que lo que le está ofreciendo. El empleador tampoco te va a decir que él puede está conspirando con la compañía de seguros para ofrecer dinero en efectivo. Le hacen estas promesas para quitarle sus derechos y las protecciones de compensación para trabajadores y las leyes y beneficios de lesiones personales. ¡No deje que le quiten sus derechos!

DON'T GET FOOLED BY YOUR BOSS AND HIS INSURANCE COMPANY

     Often, when a construction or demolition worker is injured on a faulty scaffold, or when a construction hole caves in, or a roof or ladder collapses, the supervisor on site, or the boss himself, will offer cash to the worker not to file a Workers' Compensation case or a Personal Injury case. The cash will often come with a promise to pay all medical bills and to hold your job open. What the boss never tells you is that your case may be worth many, many times more money than he is offering you. He also isn't going to tell you that he may be conspiring with his insurance company to offer you cash and promises in order to keep you from pursuing your right to the full protection of Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury laws and benefits. You do not have to let them get away with this!
