Poor safety measures cited at Briarwood accident site
From the Daily News:
A Queens construction worker stood precariously atop a dangling I-beam before the 3-ton steel piece dropped without warning, killing him and a colleague, sources said.
City investigators were checking Wednesday whether Elizandro Enrique Ramos, 43, was wearing a harness or some other protection when he plunged to his death at the six-story building in Briarwood.
Building Department inspectors shut down the Queens project on Wednesday, citing the owners for failure to provide a safe work site — and for inadequate fall protection for workers.
Briarwood MP LLC was also rapped for failure to provide adequate exits on the unfinished building’s three lowest floors.

Safety doesn't count in so many construction sites all over Queens. Just looking at some they appear to be dangerous and unsecured.
well no shit, untrained unskilled workers I suppose....
...and immoral scumbag developers and their contractors who sees needy workers as expendable subservient chattel
Union shop? Doubt it.
