Scaffolding Laws and Other Safety Regulations
In some states, labor laws hold property owners and contractors responsible for safety regulations pertaining to scaffolding, construction, demolition and excavation. This means that these parties are liable in the event of job site injury or death resulting from unsafe conditions involving scaffolds and other aspects of construction zone conditions. In a nutshell, people who own and run construction sites are responsible for providing a safe place of employment as well as taking prudent precautions to guard the safety of visitors and passersby.
