This law was enacted because the New York lawmakers rightfully regard gravity-related construction site injuries to be among the most hazardous. With objects as large and heavy as those commonly hovering over the heads of construction workers, there is no margin for error.

One small signal error or oversight on the part of a supervisor or site safety manager will mean serious injury or almost certain death for the workers below.
