New York Labor Laws

The New York Department of Labor administers and maintains the New York State Plan for Public Employee Safety and Health (PESH), which covers state, county, and town government officials as well as employees with public authorities, school districts, and paid and volunteer fire departments. PESH standards augment and supersede OSHA standards, but private employers and all other agencies must follow national OSHA standards.

  • Responds to occupational safety and health related deaths
  • Responds to accidents that send public employees to the hospital
  • Responds to complaints from public employees or their representatives
  • Inspects public employer work sites
  • Gives technical assistance during statewide emergencies

A top initiative for the New York Department of Safety and Health is preventing workplace violence, which poses a serious safety and health concern. The Workplace Violence Prevention Rule went into effect in 2009 to mitigate the dangers. For more information on the regulations and ways to minimize the threat, see DOSH's Workplace Violence Prevention Information page.

There are enforcement and labor branches of PESH, and PESH has also created strategic work groups for high-hazard industries like fire service, county police departments, and long-term health care.

New York Top OSHA Violations

In recent years, the leading cause of workplace fatalities in New York has been related to transportation and material moving. Though there can be many causes for this type of tragedy, backover, which occurs when a reversing vehicle hits a worker behind it, is common yet easily preventable. Nationwide, more than 70 workers were killed in this manner in 2011.

Nationally, the most cited standard, which also receives the highest penalties, is for fall prevention in construction. Falls commonly cause serious work-related injuries and deaths, and OSHA has many guidelines to help prevent them.

OSHA Guidelines

OSHA's purpose is to provide safe conditions for workers. OSHA sets very broad and general regulations that most businesses must follow, as well as more detailed standards for specific industries, from construction to cosmetology and beyond.

Receiving OSHA training has benefits beyond meeting requirements and keeping employees safe. It leads to healthier employees with more ease of mind, which increases productivity. Boosting morale, it reduces turnover and the time and resources spent on recruiting and training replacements. It reduces productive workers' time away from the job due to injury and illness. This is all in addition to helping protect you from OSHA's retribution, as it can levy heavy fines for not following the standards presented in American Safety Council's OSHA courses.
