Scaffold Law Reform Day is February 10

Date: January 28, 2015

On Tuesday, February 10th, advocates from across the state
will meet at the State Capitol in Albany to urge elected officials to 
reform the Scaffold Law. Registration is free. 

New York is
the only state in the country to impose strict liability on contractors and
property owners in the event of a gravity-related injury on a construction,
demolition or repair project. The significant costs of the Scaffold Law have an
impact across New York: construction costs go up, fewer workers are hired (with
some being laid off), consumers pay higher prices for goods and services, and
the economy suffers. 

Join
a coalition of business owners, trade associations, chambers of commerce and
other supporters of reforming the Scaffold Law, and tell lawmakers how the
Scaffold Law impacts your business.
