It has inconvenienced Upper Eastsiders over the past two years, but according to a new report, the Second Avenue subway project may be downright dangerous.

According to the New York Daily News, over the past two years OSHA has slapped contractors with a whopping 18 safety violations — adding up to $61,000 in fines.

Incidents reports show workers once hit a live gas line, were exposed to dangerous levels of silica and of course it was big news when a controlled blast went awry last August, and sent debris shooting up onto the street.
