Scaffolding New York Accident

Improperly erected scaffolding and failure to train workers on the hazards of working with scaffolding which resulted in the deaths of five workers and injuries to ten more  has resulted in citations against three New York contractors - Nesa, Inc, Tri-State Scaffolding & Equipment Supplies, Inc., and New Millennium Restoration & Contracting Corp., - and $159,350 in penalties.

"Aggressive action is necessary against employers who willfully disregard worker protections. This case resulted in the deaths of innocent workers," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao. "These penalties should serve as notice to Nesa, Inc., Tri-State Scaffolding, and New Millennium Restoration to take immediate corrective action to ensure that no such tragedy occurs again under their supervision."

The scaffolding accident took place at 210 Park Avenue South in Manhattan, at a building that was undergoing restoration. Nesa, Inc. was the general contractor on the project; Tri-State Scaffolding was hired by Nesa, Inc. to build the scaffolding; and New Millennium was hired by a DPA, a subcontractor of Nesa, Inc., to perform the demolition and restoration work.
