Fall protection in warehouses

New Jersey workers who are concerned about safety in their workplaces can make a confidential report to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. An example might be a workplace in which employees do not have the necessary equipment to perform their duties safely. This was the case with a 33-year-old warehouse worker who fell 7 feet to his death after standing on a pallet that had been lifted to a high shelf. The pallet was not designed for lifting people.

The dangers of driving near home

Since people usually drive near where they live, it makes sense that most crashes occur within 25 miles of the home. However, it is also easy to get complacent after taking the same route multiple times. This can lead to tuning out and making mistakes. New Jersey residents might like to know how to stay safe when driving familiar routes.

Daytime running lights may help to reduce accidents

Many New Jersey motorists are seriously injured in car accidents that happen during the daytime hours. Research demonstrates that fewer people would be involved in accidents during the day if everyone used their headlights every time they drove.

Did you develop a work-related disease because of asbestos?

For many years, exposure to asbestos was part of the job for people in a range of professions. For these unfortunate people, the potential for serious, even life-threatening diseases is very real. Mesothelioma, an aggressive and frequently deadly cancer, is often correlated to ongoing asbestos exposure.

Steps to prevent serious injury accidents

New Jersey employees face a variety of dangers in their workplaces. Traditionally, the approach to safety programs has been to report injury accidents, investigate them and to take steps to keep them from happening in the future. This approach misses steps that can be taken to prevent potential injuries before they happen, however.
