Amendment of Violation Classifications Relating to Safety of Construction Equipment
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
In order to encourage swift and decisive compliance with safety-related orders and other laws and rules at construction sites, the Department of Buildings is proposing to add two new violation classifications and to amend another. The new classifications will enable the Department to ensure public safety and more effectively enforce the laws, rules and Commissioner's orders related to the safe operation of construction equipment. The Department also seeks to amend one violation section and description by deleting a reference to a section that was repealed by Local Law 33 of 2007 and by clarifying two words that had been abbreviated.
The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 28-201.2 of the New York City Administrative Code.
