TRIBECA — Three workers fell from a sidewalk shed at a construction site erected outside a building on Broadway Thursday, officials said.

The victims were hurt at 366 Broadway just after 9 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

The workers' injuries were not serious, the spokesman said. They were conscious and alert, he added, and taken to New York Downtown Hospital in stable condition.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Buildings said the workers were hurt while erecting the 10-foot-high shed.

The contractor at the site, Spring Scaffolding, was issued a violation for "failing to safeguard all persons and property affected by construction operations," the spokeswoman said.

Spring Scaffolding declined repeated requests for comment.
