It's no surprise given the volume of trucks on the road that trucking accidents are a regular occurrence. Unfortunately, statistics show the frequency of those accidents is increasing.

Alliance seeks to improve safety in the entertainment industry

North Carolina workers in the entertainment industry can face serious threats to their health and well-being due to on-the-job accidents. Falls, electrical problems and other hazards can be dangers for workers on movie sets, in theater spaces and in other entertainment venues.
