State program to enforce work zone speed limits takes effect

People who work on and near roads and bridges doing construction and repair have some of the most dangerous jobs there are. Much of the danger comes from drivers who are frustrated about having to slow down, stop or take detours. Too often, they ignore posted speed limit signs and instructions given by those directing traffic in these areas. In 2018, there were over 1,800 work zone crashes in Pennsylvania and 23 fatalities.

What can be done to prevent fall injuries?

Data compiled by the National Safety Council (NSC) shows that some 48,060 workers were so seriously injured after suffering a multi-level fall in 2016 that they missed several days of work. Another 697 workers lost their lives in similar types of accidents that year. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that fall-related deaths are the second-leading cause of workplace fatalities. Most of these incidents are completely preventable though.

Training and equipment maintenance are essential to crane safety

Working on a crane carries some inherent danger simply because of the heights to which they take their operators. Further, cranes are often used to lift very heavy loads like beams that need to remain secure until they reach their destination. However, when workers are properly trained and the equipment is well-maintained and used appropriately, many of these dangers can be mitigated.
