Everyone has a job to do on a New York construction site. Your job is to install windows. In some cases, that means going to great heights to make sure that windows are installed on tall New York City buildings. In every case, it means working with fragile glass. Whether this is your first day on the job or you have been doing this kind of work for years, it is important to understand your injury risks and to know what to do if you’ve been hurt.

Three Ways Window Installers May Get Hurt

If you install windows, or if you love someone who does, then it is important to know that:

  1. Window installers face the same risks as other construction workers who work at heights. Your scaffolding may be faulty, your ladder may be broken, your harness may not catch you in a fall, or other equipment may not protect you. In other words, you could be seriously injured in a construction fall accident.
  2. Glass can be dangerous. If you slip or if the window falls from your hands or otherwise breaks, then the glass can quickly become dangerous. It can result in painful cuts or eye injuries.
  3. Other workers may put you at risk. You may be at risk of being hurt by falling debris or by actions taken by others working on the same construction site.

Of course, this list represents only a few ways that you might be injured, and you may face other risks.
