DOB tours Queens construction site

From NY1:

Inspectors from the Department of Buildings toured a construction site in Queens this week, as part of Construction Safety Week 2009.

Too bad they missed all the ones I've been finding. Donnie O'Connor was always good at that, I hear. And for that, he was promoted!

Donald O'Connor... working on the side.

I have a list of a few that he should see. They are all within blocks of each other will violations and tragedies galore. By the way, the 18th Street in Astoria unfenced construction site now has a gate so children can't just walk in. I hope word got back through someone reading this blog.

It may have saved lives.

Thank you my dear. I have made the same point about the "Bribery Brigade" and no end of innocent lambs have upbraided me for it.

They are so surprised to learn that our leaders have dirty hands. I'll have to gift them all with a copy of Blake's "Songs of Innocence."

The "Songs of Experience" they can learn for themselves after the buildings fall on their heads.

It is great that people are thinking about the environment and working to make the world a safer place. Not only the materials that you are using on your home are safe for the environment but dump trucks have come a long way since the earlier models. We are learning and expanding and coming up with a wide range of safer more effective vehicles for the work force. I think it is great that many auto manufacturers are turning to hybrid vehicles to protect the environment and now they are even using hybrid dump trucks.
