Print Safety Matters Construction Series NYSIF insures many NYS contracting risks, both large and small. In order to bring our safety message to job sites throughout the state, NYSIF developed the Safety Matters Construction Series. This series focuses on the four main causes of the most serious construction injuries: falls, electrocution, struck by, and excavation. Based on OSHA training materials, these colorful, one-page handouts may be used by all contractors to promote safety on the job site. These resources are also available in Spanish.
