Employers must provide a safe work environment for employees under both federal and local laws. On the federal level, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) lists construction worksite regulations encompassing 430 sections and sub-sections. Locally, after fatal crane accidents in 2008, New York City enacted several new worksite safety laws. Thanks to such laws, construction worksite accidents have decreased a bit. But still, the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that in 2010, there were more than 2.9 million workplace injuries, including those at construction worksites. And the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that in New York alone in 2007, there were 2,423 fatal worksite accidents.
In the state of New York, dog owners can only be held liable for injuries from a dog attack if they had prior knowledge of an animal’s “vicious propensity.” Determining whether a dog exhibits a vicious propensity will depend on whether it is known to have previously attacked or killed another person or behaved in a way to indicate it poses a substantial threat to others. As such, a dog that ferociously barks, growls, or bares its teeth at strangers could be considered an imminent threat if it later attacks someone in public, even on the property of the owner. New York’s dog bite law allows people injured by a dog (or domestic animal) to sue an owner for damages in cases where the owner had reason to believe their dog posed a risk or threat to others.
