June 2014 Archives

When truckers are encouraged to break HOS regulations

One of the most talked-about stories this June was the truck accident that severely injured comedian Tracy Morgan, a native New Yorker best known for his work on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. While driving on the New Jersey Turnpike, Morgan’s limousine was struck by a semi-truck operated by a driver who allegedly had not slept in 24 hours.

Straightforward ways to improve workplace safety

One of the most frequent complaints about government safety regulation in general and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in particular is that many safety-related demands placed on businesses are cost-prohibitive. Critics say that small businesses are forced to choose between complying with OSHA regulations and making a profit.

OSHA launches interactive work hazard identification tool

We frequently write about the numerous hazards that many American workers encounter at their work sites on a daily basis. Some of these hazards are obvious, like the heights from which many New York construction workers must navigate their tasks. However, other hazards may be hidden. These hidden hazards cannot be properly addressed until they are identified. When hazards remain hidden, they may cause workplace accidents which could have been prevented had employees and employers identified them and responded to them appropriately.

Workers: Heed these warnings before stepping onto ladders

We frequently write about the hazards that New York construction workers face when they are working on skyscrapers and high-rises. However, construction workers and other outdoor laborers also regularly face danger even when they are only working a story or two off the ground. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, more than 40 percent of all fatal workplace accidents caused by falls involve ladders. An additional 20 percent of non-fatal fall injuries involve these seemingly simple tools.
