The urban landscape of New York City is perpetually in flux. At all times of year and any time of day construction workers, craftsmen, city employees, and contractors can be found on the job, doing their best to keep the city growing in a safe and successful way. However, these industrial and construction jobs come with a heightened level of risk for those on the work site. In such situations, it is the responsibility of foremen, managers, and employers to make sure that the environment their employees work in is as safe as possible.
New York residents probably remember hearing about the Dec. 14 elevator accident that claimed the life of a 41-year-old advertising executive. She was killed in horrific fashion when the elevator she was trying to board shot up suddenly, ending her life in tragic and dramatic manner.
