Some deadly crashes could be related to opiate use

New Jersey drivers may be worried about many threats on the road, from people texting while driving to those getting behind the wheel while drunk. One study is drawing attention to another potential contributor to serious car wrecks: prescription opioids. While the opiate epidemic has attracted widespread attention as a public health crisis linked to escalating addiction and the danger of fatal overdoses, researchers have noted that the drugs could also be connected to some deadly crashes.

Carbon monoxide poisoning in the workplace

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued a reminder to employers in New Jersey and the rest of the United States to do what it takes to protect their workers from the effects of carbon monoxide exposure. The reminder is in response to a number of incidents that show that there is a need to instruct both workers and employers about the hazards of carbon monoxide exposure caused by portable generators and other types of tools inside of enclosed spaces.

Why car accidents occur

There are many reasons drivers in New Jersey can get into accidents. The insurance claims adjuster and law enforcement have to determine the causes of accidents to determine who is at fault. This information is important to the police because it helps identify who should receive a ticket. It is also important for the insurance company because it helps determine who is to receive a claims payment and the amount the payment is to be.

OSHA urges improved tractor safety

New Jersey workers dealing with tractors and other heavy equipment on the job may face particular risks of injuries. Every year, around 130 farmworkers are killed across the country in accidents involving tractor rollovers. As a result, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a guide to educate workers and employers about steps they can take to improve tractor safety on the job. The guide recommends the use of protective structures that can prevent rollovers, including roll bars or cage frames. OSHA says that these items can improve tractor safety overall, especially for people who are operating the equipment.
