How do the New York State Labor Laws regarding construction sites promote worker safety?

Without the Scaffold Law, more building owners and contractors in the highly competitive construction industry would cut corners on safety. The owner who signs the construction contract and makes the payment can and should insist on full compliance with all safety standards. By making building owners and general contractors responsible for work site safety, the Scaffold Law effectively ensures that workers will be safe and secure. The Scaffold Law also deters owners and general contractors from hiring subcontractors who have poor safety records.
