Workplace injuries due to some common safety failures

Workplace safety is a concern in North Carolina and throughout the U.S. Although there can be an accident in any kind of job, there are types of occupations in which the danger is higher. Combining that with the propensity of some industries to commit violations, workers can be in jeopardy.

Road Safety groups want more protection for rear-seat passengers

All passenger vehicle occupants are required to fasten their seat belts in North Carolina, but research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that such laws are ignored by up to one in four rear-seat passengers. Many automotive safety features introduced in recent years greatly improve crash survivability for drivers and front-seat passengers , but they do little to protect those occupying the rear seats. This is becoming an increasingly serious road safety issue due to the growing popularity of ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.

Improving dock safety reduces accidents, injuries

Loading and unloading semitrailers in manufacturing plants, distribution centers and warehouses is fast-paced work that can quickly lead to injuries. Loading docks, where the center of receiving and unloading takes place, can be one of the most dangerous places to work in a facility. This is due to both the arduous nature of the work and the machinery that is used to assist in the tasks. Taking safety measures can help prevent needless injuries from occurring.
