Scaffold Squad

New, 2 comments

After a bunch of accidents, the Department of Buildings is going to be stepping up its inspection of scaffolding at construction sites. The promise to inspect 1,500 sites in the next month comes after several workers have died and people have had to dodge falling objects. The most recent accident took place in Clinton Hill, where a worked fell ten stories and died. Nine inspectors are supposed to be doing random checks in all five boroughs and issuing Stop Work Orders if there are problems. They will also be checking low level scaffolds. [NYP]
