Illinois Legislature Considers the Construction Safety Act of 2008 (HB 2094)

Chicago Representative Fritchey has sponsored a bill that is now being read on the Illinois House floor that would improve protections for construction workers in Illinois. The bill is a response to the increasing dangers of working in construction that often include catastrophic injuries, disability, and worker’s compensation suits. The bill would increase requirements for safety features on scaffolding, require posted worksite safety information and warnings, as well as other detailed requirements to improve working conditions for Illinois construction workers.
