Avoiding blind spot accidents in the workplace

In Georgia and across the US, managers of warehouses and loading docks have begun to express concern over the inadequacy of various safety measures, especially those meant to prevent blind-spot collisions. For example, many workplaces are outfitted with one-size-fits-all convex mirrors without any regard to the environment, the number of intersections, traffic flow and other unique factors.

Preventing falls in the workplace

All Georgia employers are required to keep the workplace as safe as possible for employees. This also includes providing proper training for workers and the proper equipment for them to be able to complete the job. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration also helps employers ensure that the workplace is safe by providing advice on how to prevent potentially fatal incidents.

Being proactive with workplace accidents

Georgia workers regardless of their occupation may be interested in learning more about preventing injuries in the workplace. In the past, companies have often investigated only those injuries that have actually taken place in their efforts to increase safety. However, a new paradigm suggests it may be better to proactively investigate even potential incidents that nevertheless may have been very serious if they had actually occurred.

The danger of water pipe repairs

Georgia workers who routinely work with water pipes should know that researchers at Purdue University believe that a commonly used method to repair water pipes is not as safe as originally believed. According to the researchers, the cured-in-place pipe repair method releases dangerous chemicals in the air that can harm not only workers but also the general public and the environment.
