A map of Manhattan's 17 construction-related fatalities since 2015



New York City legislators are considering a sweeping set of new regulations aimed at improving worksite safety in response to what city council members termed “an alarming increase in construction site injuries and fatalities.” Proposed measures include requiring increased safety netting and guardrails to prevent falls, one of the most common types of construction accident, changes in accident reporting requirements, and a controversial training mandate that has sparked rancor between union and non-union construction firms..

There were 30 construction-related deaths reported in New York City in 2015 and 2016. This map shows the 17 fatalities that occurred in Manhattan.
