Who is responsible for the safety of the construction workers?

Who is responsible for the safety of the construction workers at a job site in New York?

The law in New York is specifically written to protect the workers at the job site. The law makes the owner of the property, any general contractor that the owner hires, and any other agent such as a construction manager responsible for the safety of the construction worker. If anyone is injured on the job site because there is a lack of a safety device or other type of safety protection on the job site, it is always the owner and the general contractor and their agents that are responsible to make sure that those things were safe and therefore, they are responsible for the safety of the job site.
