The number of building permits issued in 2016 for N.J. new residential construction increased significantly compared to the prior year.
The areas with the highest number of permits issued include:
1. Jersey City, Hudson County
2. Lakewood, Ocean County
3. Elizabeth, Union County
4. Fort Lee, Bergen County
5. Secaucus, Hudson County
The boom in permits inevitably means an increased demand for construction workers. As construction management companies are eager to fill positions it’s crucial that all safety protocols are followed, and that all workers receive adequate training. When employers fail to properly train their employees, or neglect to provide necessary safety equipment, they are putting their employees at risk of serious injury and even death.
