Construction accidents involving forklifts are prevalent

Construction workers in New Hampshire face numerous life-threatening hazards whenever they step onto their work sites. One of the dangers that cause significant numbers of construction accidents involves mechanical equipment such as forklifts. They are present on almost all construction sites, and the risks they pose are not always recognized.

Typical causes of forklift accidents include inadequate or no training, negligent operation, the lack of required maintenance and the use of improper attachments and tools. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration expects compliance with all safety regulations, but these rules are often disregarded. However, proper supervision could prevent injuries and deaths caused by forklifts.

There is no cure for a spinal cord injury, so protect yourself

Any workplace in New Hampshire poses safety risks. However, those who work in construction, logging or commercial transport face occupational hazards that can cause catastrophic injuries that are life-changing. One example is a spinal cord injury, which will require an extended period in a hospital, followed by long-term rehabilitation.

Gaining knowledge about spinal cord injuries may motivate you to take particular precautions to prevent circumstances in which you might be a victim of such an injury. Keep in mind that there is no cure for spinal cord damage.

Analyzing over a century of fatal U.S. motor vehicle accidents

As time has gone on, motor vehicles have become far more advanced -- not just in their capabilities to maneuver out on the road, but in their ability to protect the people inside of them too. This has done wonders for the motor vehicle accident fatality rate, but that doesn't mean that everything is peachy in the world of road safety.

For most of the 1900s, the fatal accident rate was poor. In the early years, they almost never happened -- which is to be expected. The automobile industry wasn't fully formed yet. But by the 1960s and 1970s, people were dying in motor vehicle accidents at increasingly disturbing rates. For many years, there were upwards of 40,000, and even 50,000, people dying in automobile accidents.
