Deadly worksite shut down

From NY1:

The Department of Buildings has slammed a contractor with 41 violations after a construction worker fell to his death from a Midtown office building Monday.

Most of the violations against Stonehenge Restoration were related to safety.

The DOB said the worker who died was not wearing a harness before falling 12 stories onto a sidewalk shed.

Officials said there was also a lack of guardrails and no sign the scaffolding was inspected daily.

Other violations were for work without a permit, illegal signs and failure to report an accident.

The DOB immediately issued a full stop work order.

That's why they hire illegals to do these jobs, they fall to their deaths and the family has no rights to complain. Maybe it's time to make a change to who these construction companies are allowed to hire?

How the heck did DOB miss this disaster in the making?
Perhaps they weren't paid off enough?
