Try to avoid the blind spots around commercial trucks for safety

Commercial trucks are several times taller, longer and heavier than even the largest passenger vehicles on the road. That means that they create unique concerns for the people driving them. Commercial truck drivers have to go through special educational programs to safely manage large commercial trucks, and standard driving school usually includes lessons on sharing the road safely.

Office workers have risks of injuries occurring

People typically assume that working in an office setting is pretty safe. While it is true that these workers don't have a lot of the same hazards as construction workers or others who have manual labor to handle, there are still some risks that office workers face that must be addressed.

Motorcyclists should remain safe when riding in winter

People who ride motorcycles understand that safety must remain a priority while they are on the roads. It is imperative that they don't do things that might lead to them having accidents, but bikers can't control every potential hazard that they face. Other drivers are a huge risk for people who are on motorcycles.

Seat belts can cause injuries in some car crashes

Most people know that wearing a seat belt is the law, but what they might not realize is that there is a chance that this life-saving feature could cause injuries. The seat belt stops your body from flying around the vehicle, and possibly out of it, if there is a crash.

What must manual laborers know about work-related back injuries?

Manual labor takes a toll on the body. Workers in the construction industry, those who have a warehouse position, and individuals in similar positions are at risk of a back injury. Around 30% of construction workers suffer from an injury to the back or spine that requires them to miss work.

Proper safety protocol can minimize logging industry accidents

The logging industry comes with several hazards for workers, but these can usually be minimized by the employers if they establish proper safety protocols. The rate of fatalities in this industry is 23 times higher than the rate for all workers in this country.
