Legislators debate device to track distracted driving crashes

Thousands of people in New Jersey and across the country are injured or even killed each year in crashes linked to distracted driving. While most states have outlawed texting or surfing the internet while driving, distraction continues to pose a major threat to roadway safety. As a result, legislators in one state are considering adopting a still-untested technology that could allow police to determine whether a driver was using a mobile phone during or immediately prior to a crash.

Wearable tech for workers faces cost and privacy concerns

Many workers in New Jersey are using wearable technology, which refers to any mobile electronic device that attaches to the body for a set purpose. Some of the common types of wearable tech in the workplace are "smart" personal protective equipment, hard hats with sensors and safety glasses with heads-up displays.

Changes to sleep patterns may make driving dangerous

Residents of New Jersey and most other states in the country lost an hour of sleep on March 10. While losing an hour of sleep may not seem like a big deal, it could significantly increase a person's risk of getting into a car accident. According to research by AAA's Foundation for Traffic Safety, losing that hour could double a person's risk of being involved in an accident.

If you work in the health care field taking care of patients suffering from dementia, chances are good that you may have experienced combative behavior from one of the residents of the long-term care facility where you are employed. Dealing with these behaviors is challenging, as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) discovered that approximately 6 percent of the million or so residents receiving care in nursing homes act physically aggressive toward staff and others at least once a week.

Bill proposes OSHA standards for workplace violence

New Jersey hospital workers know how unsafe their job environment can be. One overlooked threat is workplace violence. For example, there have been many cases of psychiatric nurses being attacked by patients. Assault can lead to traumatic brain injuries, which in turn can result in permanent or lingering issues like speech problems and continual headaches.
