What is an injury and illness prevention program?

Workplaces that use injury and illness prevention programs help keep employees safe. These programs are processes during which employers locate and eliminate hazards before others have the chance to suffer injuries. While many workplaces have these programs, not all do. Those who do report seeing better production in the workplace, higher quality results and reduced costs. Employees are also happier in safe environments.

Child safety seats provide protection, but your child is at risk

Studies have shown time and time again that children in rear-facing car seats are safer when in car crashes. A new study, though, has shown that some head injuries are possible in these seats, despite the overall higher level of safety provided. The study, published in the Journal of Traffic Injury Prevention, has shown that crash-test dummies in rear-facing car seats could suffer serious head injuries as the seat moves toward the back of the car in an accident.

Firefighter killed in traffic crash while responding to fire

A firefighter with the Whiteford Volunteer Fire Company in Maryland was killed on March 14, as he was responding to a fire call in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The fire department veteran of 21 years worked for the City of Harrisburg Bureau of Fire as a paid employee, but volunteered at four Maryland departments: Citizens, Eureka, Delta-Cardiff and Whiteford. He had been with the Whiteford Volunteer Fire Company for 18 years.

How can you prevent accidents at work?

Workplace safety is an important part of keeping employees healthy. As a new employee, it's your employer's job to make sure you understand the best ways to stay safe in the workplace, whether that is through training you to work with machinery or tools or by providing you with informational pamphlets on acceptable behavior in the office.

Does stress increase risk for a workplace accident?

Stressful situations often mean that the people involved in them aren't able to keep their minds on what they are doing. Whether you're dealing with stress that comes from a family or personal financial situation or the workplace itself is stressful, if your mind is occupied, it stands to reason that you are more likely to make an error. Errors on the job can lead to workplace accidents -- that's true for everyone on the team.
