Management Derelict In cooperatives SafetyMay 29, 2019

We have an exhaust fan in our laundry room with rotating blades  to the street.

There was a screen covering these blades that was recently removed.

We are not a gated community and this poses a danger to humans and animals that might be playing in the area.

Since multiple request to cover the exposed blades have been ignored, are there any laws that require management to replace the protective screen?

If you are a Coop or Condo your board needs to get a replacement or ask management to find a company that makes the protected cover. If something does happen like a child or adult cuts a hand or finger your building is in for a big law suit. Call 311 if you get no response from your board. Best of Luck.
