Night shift drivers risk drowsiness on the way home

Over 9.5 million Americans work a night shift or rotational shift, and around 28 percent of drivers admitted that they fell asleep at the wheel once last year. This is according to researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital. Night shift workers in Georgia should know that drowsy driving is considered a public health hazard and can hit them hard during their commute home.

Motorcycle and pedestrian fatalities rose in 2016

The number of people killed in automobile accidents in Georgia and around the country has risen alarmingly for the second consecutive year. A report published on Oct. 6 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that 37,461 lives were lost on the nation's roads in 2016, and a closer scrutiny of the figures indicates that fatalities were particularly high among the most vulnerable road users.

Are nightclubs a particularly risky place?

Everybody enjoys relaxing and having fun. For some, this means going to a nightclub and enjoying a night out on the town. Atlanta is a great destination for such attractions, too — there are myriad clubs throughout the city that cater to a range of tastes and interests. There are a number of reasons why a nightclub environment might be particularly dangerous to patrons, though.

Keeping the workplace safe for workers of all ages

Georgia workers may be aware that more and more employees are putting off retirement and working longer. While the traditional retirement age is 60 or 65, many individuals who are 70 or 75 are still working due to financial or other reasons. This can present a challenge for employers who have to present or deliver safety information in a way that all employees can understand.

Preventing falls in a warehouse

Georgia employers should make worker safety a top priority and enforce safety rules at all times. Doing so could prevent injuries or deaths in the workplace. One warehouse worker died after he fell from a pallet that was 7 feet off of the ground. He had been elevated by a forklift to a storage rack that was roughly 8 feet above a concrete floor.
