September 2016 Archives

OSHA states that reporting rule has been effective

Following the implementation of the rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that requires employers to report severe injuries and amputations to the agency within 24 hours, the agency reports that it has been a big success. The rule took effect on Jan. 1, 2015, and it requires employers in Massachusetts and around the country to report any eye losses, amputations or injuries requiring hospitalization.

Contributing factors in cerebral palsy cases

A Massachusetts family dealing with cerebral palsy could experience a wide range of medical challenges through the life of a child born with the condition. The prevailing belief is that CP occurs because of a child being deprived of oxygen during birth. While this can be a contributing factor, this is not always the case. In fact, scientists are now finding that this is representative of very few instances of the condition.

The U.S. Dept of Transport Proposes Speed Limiters for Trucks

We've all cruised along the Mass Turnpike and had trucks blow by us. The posted speed limit is of course 65 mph, but truckers, like their car-driving counterparts, are not above putting the pedal to the metal. This can come to the detriment of those around them: Perhaps you remember the two-truck accident in Charlton on August 12 that shut down the eastbound lanes of turnpike through morning rush hour?

Officials concerned about the rise in traffic fatalities

Considering the new accident statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers in Massachusetts might want to be more cautious on the roads. According to the agency, nationwide traffic fatalities increased more than 7 percent in 2015. This was the largest one-year increase since 1966. The total number of deaths in 2015 was 35,092.

Implementing workplace safety before it is too late

Massachusetts employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees. Since OSHA safety fines can cut deep into profits, businesses have an incentive to implement workplace safety programs and procedures before an accident occurs. Rather than waiting for disaster to strike or a fine to occur, employers can be proactive in their approach to safety.
