We have expanded our citywide Experience Is Not Enough worker safety campaign. As part of this multi-lingual initiative, Department inspectors are distributing more than 10,000 flyers to educate construction workers about proper fall protection and safe construction using C-joists.

In April 2011, Former Commissioner Robert LiMandri announced the Experience Is Not Enough campaign to encourage workers to use proper fall protection while working on the job site. The multi-lingual campaign emphasized that no matter how long workers have been in the construction trades and no matter how much experience they have, they need to use proper fall protection – such as safety harnesses, guardrails and netting – to protect themselves and fellow workers. Worker falls are the most common construction related accident in New York.
