Construction sites are inherently dangerous and all the proper construction safety precautions must be taken and maintained to ensure the safety of the site. We at D.A. Doddridge and Associates, Inc. have firsthand experience with construction site safety and are aware of the non-delegable duties contractors have to maintain a safe work environment. According to OSHA, one in five worker deaths in 2016 were in construction. And in New York, the Queens Supreme Court awarded a record-breaking $62 million dollars to the plaintiff in a trial where Mr. Doddridge served as the construction site safety expert.
We provide OSHA-certified expert advice in:
- Fall protection in construction
- Fall protection training
- Falling objects
- Scaffolding and ladders
- Machinery and machine guarding
- Respiratory protection
- Hazard communication
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
We provide construction accident reconstruction demonstratives via highly accurate scale models of construction accidents, forensic animation services or a combination of the two. We can quickly and accurately recreate a construction accident based upon building plans, scaffolding plans, photographs and eye witness testimony. These accident reconstruction demonstratives greatly assist in educating a judge or jury.
