Can a new device put a stop to distracted driving?

Autonomous vehicles are in development, but they aren’t yet mainstream. This means, of course, that we need to be, as drivers, alert, awake and aware at all times behind the wheel of our vehicles. Sadly, many of us take our responsibilities as drivers for granted. We drive while distracted or while fatigued, or even after drinking to excess.

Fatalities and teen drivers

Maryland teens may be at higher risk for fatal accidents when they have teenage passengers. New research released by the American Automobile Association's Foundation for Traffic Safety reveals that teen drivers with teenage passengers have a 51 percent higher risk of getting in a fatal car crash.

Safety matters for temporary workers, too

This time of year, leading up to the Christmas and Hanukkah season, sees retailers, factories, delivery/logistics providers and more adding temporary workers en masse. Temp or seasonal workers sometimes get a “bad rap” on the job, because they are only there to tide things over until work slows back down. That is wholly unfair to the countless men and women who fill these seasonal positions, though.

Switch to standard time increases car-pedestrian accident risk

Fall can be a dangerous time for pedestrians, as dusk becomes part of rush hour. The end of daylight savings time moves sundown right into the commute, meaning that drivers are forced to adjust to less ambient light and more light from headlights and streetlights. The difference in light changes the appearance of things. It changes the shadows. Small moving objects like pedestrians seem to disappear.

OSHA releases preliminary list of top workplace violations

Recently, the National Safety Council held their Congress & Expo, billed as the country’s largest gathering of safety professionals. As part of that, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released their top 10 most frequently cited workplace violations for fiscal year 2018.
