Reactive, not proactive

(AP) Officials say they will inspect more than 1,500 scaffolds on New York City construction sites following two recent deadly accidents.

Buildings Commissioner Patricia Lancaster says the inspections will happen over the next month at sites that have supported scaffolds or sidewalk sheds. She also issued new requirements requiring construction workers to give the city two days notice before erecting scaffolds under 40 feet high.

The announcement comes after the death of a construction worker who fell about 13 stories off a scaffold in Brooklyn last month. A window washer also died in a fall of more than 40 stories from a scaffold in December.

Thank you so, so much Commish Pat.

The Department of Bribe-taking Bumblers (DOB)
should have been doing this 20 years ago.

NOW....wadda ya gonna do about
all those (as yet) uncaught
crooked "building inspectors"
who augment their "livings"with some extra
pocket cash ?

Huang and Scarano are still running around like elusive architectural mass murderers.

maybe some of your department heads are getting too many "favors"from that convicted felon Huang!

Rumors has it that dozens of workers have been killed in the construction industry in NY, most of them illegal aliens that are being exploited.

This has been ignored by immigrant advocacy groups (most are funded by the politicians who are in hock to the developers, thus buying their silence.)

This should be looked into by the NY media.
