At a worker safety rally in Albany, Scaffold Safety Coalition members joined Assemblymember Francisco Moya, lead sponsor of the Construction Insurance Transparency Act, to support the Scaffold Safety Law and to call for greater transparency in the construction insurance industry.
In a statement, coalition member Gary LaBarbera, President of the NYC Building & Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, said:
“New York has long been a leader when it comes to worker safety, and we can’t afford to break that tradition. Weakening the Scaffold Safety Law would put thousands of working people’s lives at direct risk. If the insurance industry shares our concerns about construction site safety, they shouldn’t stand in the way of real debate and should let the real facts come out.”
