New workers to the workforce suffer the highest rates of injuries

New employees are three times more likely to become injured on the job compared to those who have been on the job for more than a year, according to research from the Institute for Work & Health. While workers are settling into their new roles and becoming familiar with coworkers and supervisors, their safety may not be at the forefront of their thinking.

Could your loved one’s fall have been due to hospital negligence?

When an elderly or vulnerable loved one is hospitalized, you expect them to be treated with the utmost of care. That means taking steps to prevent your loved one from falling. Unfortunately, hospital falls are far too common, and they can cause serious injuries – especially in patients whose health is already fragile.

Is it too wet to drive?

Precipitation offers challenges to safe driving, particularly among less experienced drivers. While the rainiest months are behind us, falling temperatures can leave roads wet longer and eventually cause familiar problems with ice and snow. Knowing how to drive in these conditions can help prevent car accidents and make the roads safer for everyone.

Contagious health care professionals

Whether it is the start of the school year or dropping temperatures, this time of year sees an uptick in contagious illnesses like the flu. Depending on the workplace, employees may be encouraged to stay home or expected to show up no matter what. Few workplaces understand the drawbacks of contagious workers like those in the health care field. Despite this understanding, a surprising number of health care professionals continue to report to work when they are sick, according to a recent study.

Cars designed to make drivers unsafe

New research has confirmed the fears of many safety experts regarding new car features. In-vehicle devices intended to entertain or guide drivers are a serious distraction and encourage hazardous behavior. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety conducted an analysis of some of these systems and found that they left drivers distracted for more than 40 seconds for some functions. Previous AAA studies show that a distraction which takes a driver’s eyes off the road for 2 seconds increases the risk of an accident by 100 percent.

Car seat installation key to safety

Car seats are a vital component in keeping children safe. Small children cannot safely wear seat belts and need the protection afforded by car seats and their restraints. Unfortunately, a surprising percentage of car seats are not being used effectively. According to the National Traffic Safety Administration, 59 percent of these seats are installed improperly. As a result, these seats are either ineffective or less effective than they should be at preventing injury in the event of a car accident.
