Construction Sites for Safety Violations
DOB announced the mobilization of teams of DOB
enforcement inspectors across the five
boroughs to perform safety sweeps of the city's
larger and more complex construction sites, to
ensure that they are safe for both workers and the
public. While performing these zero tolerance
sweeps, DOB inspectors will issue enforcement
actions if they observe any safety violations and
will shut down sites if they find serious safety
inspectors and community engagement teams will also
"Worker Alert" safety information at
construction sites on the dangers of worker falls.
In the last two weeks, three construction workers in
New York City lost their lives in separate
work-related incidents. Two of these fatal incidents
were the result of worker falls. These three
incidents are still under investigation by the
Department and our partners in law enforcement.
During this sweep, DOB inspectors will be conducting
site visits at thousands of construction work sites
in neighborhoods across the city. Contractors who
are found to be putting their workers at risk by
flouting safety regulations could face penalties of
up to $25,000 for each construction safety
