Types of car accidents that will benefit you to know about

The tourist seasons in North Carolina bring a large influx of traffic into the area. This means that everyone needs to be prepared for driving in these conditions. There are many different types of accidents that take place when drivers aren't paying full attention to the conditions.

Falling objects at construction sites are preventable hazards

Construction projects typically involve working at heights above ground level. While this is necessary so that the project can be done properly, it is a big risk for workers. Objects that workers use to get the job done are a primary hazard at construction sites. These items, which can include building materials, supplies and tools, should be properly secured and handled when they are used above ground level.

The implications of a car accident while hauling a boat

When you are hauling your boat on the back of your car, you are at a much higher risk of being involved in an accident. This is because of the length of your vehicle, and the weight distribution. The trailer can very easily sway or become unstable with a slight incorrect movement of the vehicle, or with excessive speed.

Keeping construction sites safe helps workers

Construction workers shouldn't have to deal with unsafe working conditions. Even under the best of circumstances, they will still have to work around heavy machinery that can cause injuries, as well as other conditions that might not be fully safe. It is imperative that all construction companies take steps to keep workers protected.

Safety must be a priority in the construction industry

Construction site safety is a crucial part of the industry. The very nature of the work and the tools, machines and supplies that it takes to erect buildings make this a hazardous profession. The burden for construction site safety falls on the contracting company, or employer, of the workers who are getting the job done.

Workers’ compensation: The basics

As a construction worker in Wilmington, you probably know just how dangerous your job is. But, do you know what to do if you suffer an injury on the job? Do you know whether or not you even qualify for workers' compensation benefits? And, if you do qualify, do you know how to file a claim?

"The weather outside is frightful": Stay safe on the roads

Driving in the cold winter months is sometimes a lesson in patience. The road conditions might make it hard to navigate in the same manner that you are accustomed to driving. Trying to find ways to remain safe and comfortable becomes a priority in these months.

With these tips, you can spot a distracted driver

Driving through Wilmington is dangerous even at the best times. However, when you combine poor weather conditions and distracted drivers, the roads turn deadly. It only takes one second for a driver to take his eyes off the road and slam into your car while you commute to work. While the only way you can truly avoid a distracted driver is to completely stay off the roads, this is an extremely unlikely scenario.
