Decline in Safety Inspections Correlates to Increase in Construction Accidents

Construction-AccidentWith safety inspections in New York City dropping in the last few years, construction worker injuries and deaths have increased. This downward trend seems to be correlated with a decrease in the number of OSHA Inspectors in New York City and across the state, a new study has found.

Construction-related fatalities in the city rose from 17 in 2011 to 25 in 2015, and in the state as a whole, including the city, from 33 to 55, according to the report by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety & Health. Incidents involving either fatalities or injuries jumped from 128 in 2011 to 435 in 2015 in the state.

Meanwhile, the number of safety inspections by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the state fell each year, from 2,722 in 2011 to 1,966 in 2015, the study found.
