Work-related car accident claims life of tow truck driver

While stopping on the side of the road to assist another person with a stranded vehicle can be dangerous at times, it may be part of the job for many tow truck drivers in Georgia. Should another driver fail to take the necessary precautions upon encountering a similar circumstance, the results can be devastating. A tow truck driver was reportedly hit and killed during a recent work-related car accident in a neighboring state.

Why do workplace falls keep happening?

We have known for years that workplace falls are one of the biggest hazards on the job. They tend to cause more serious and fatal injuries than any other type of accident. They are worse in some occupations -- like construction -- than in others, but they are a risk almost everywhere.

Officer suffers serious injuries in job-related car accident

In some cases, workers in Georgia and elsewhere may be able to reduce the odds of a job-related accident by strictly adhering to safety protocols and regulations. However, the safety of those who are required to operate a vehicle as a part of their job may also rest partly in the hands of other drivers. An on-the-job car accident can have a devastating impact on a person's well-being and the extensive costs of treatment that often accompany similar incidents could also bring about periods of financial strain.

The possible causes and consequences of neck and back injuries

Suffering a serious injury while on the job can be a devastating experience. While some injuries may require only a short period of recovery, others could leave a person in Georgia with long-term pain and suffering, which could have a significant impact on one's life. Neck and back injuries can be some of the most painful and intense injuries a person could suffer, and these injuries can unfortunately take place under a variety of scenarios.

Repetitive stress injuries like HAVS can be debilitating

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires all employers to inform employees of the health and safety hazards their jobs present. However, many industrial workers in Georgia and across the country are not warned about the risk of developing Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. HAVS is one of the preventable repetitive stress injuries that can cause long-term health problems.
