No. While it is always a good practice to check the safety measures that are enforced at your place of work, it is not actually the responsibility of the construction worker to take these precautions. Rather, this responsibility rests with the owner of the property and / or the general contractor who is affiliated with the project. Depending on the circumstances involved, a sub-contractor might also be held responsible for ensuring the safety of a construction worksite in New York City.
