Think hands-free cellphones are safe for drivers? Think again

Federal safety regulations prohibit commercial truck drivers from using handheld cellphones to talk or text. This rule is intended to help cut down on the number of distraction-related truck accidents involving cellphone use. Unfortunately, a growing body of evidence suggests that hands-free devices may not be any safer than handheld cellphones when used by drivers behind the wheel.

New research shines spotlight on workplace fall prevention

Falls are some of the most common work-related injuries, particularly among workers at construction sites, warehouses, factories and others in physically demanding occupations. Some workplace falls involve trips, slips and stumbles on a slippery or obstructed walking surface, while others involve falls from heights due to inadequate restraint systems, broken guard rails or other factors.

Sunday is Elder Abuse Awareness Day

This coming Sunday, June 15, is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. In Ohio, which has one of the highest elderly populations in the country, nursing home neglect and other forms of elder abuse have been characterized as a silent epidemic.

Trucking industry pushes back on hours-of-service limit

Some members of the trucking industry are pushing Congress to ease back on a trucking safety law that limits the number of hours that truckers may work in any given week. That regulation, which went into effect in July 2013, sets a 70-hour cap on the workweek for truck drivers in the United States in order to prevent fatigue-related truck crashes. Once they reach that limit, truckers are required to take an extended break before driving again.
