How marijuana can impact worker safety

New York state is seriously considering legalizing recreational marijuana. If this occurs, it could result in safety concerns for employers in many different industries. In 2016, more than 4,600 people who worked in the private sector died while on the job. Roughly 20 percent of those who died worked in the construction industry according to the Department of Labor (DOL). In addition, employers are worried that those who fail drug tests will need to be sent home.

Scaffolding regulations: an overview

OSHA estimates that 65 percent of construction workers frequently use scaffolding. Scaffolding accidents are all too common and result in some of the most serious injuries in the industry. This is why construction employers will want to make sure they comply with OSHA regulations and know what New York labor laws have to say regarding liability.
