The Department of Buildings has slammed a contractor with 41 violations after a construction worker fell to his death from a Midtown office building Monday.

Most of the violations against Stonehenge Restoration were related to safety.

The DOB said the worker who died was not wearing a harness before falling 12 stories onto a sidewalk shed.

Officials said there was also a lack of guardrails and no sign the scaffolding was inspected daily.

Other violations were for work without a permit, illegal signs and failure to report an accident.

The DOB immediately issued a full stop work order.
