Ships’ decks are common locations for injuries

A ship’s deck can be dangerous for workers. It is one of the most accident-prone areas of a ship, and work on deck involves numerous risks. Even a small accident can result in a serious injury and expensive litigation. Businesses should understand the most common injuries that take place on deck so they can prevent them from happening as well as construct a defense in case of a lawsuit.

Rise in scooter use leading to frequent emergency room trips

Trampolines, hoover boards and four wheelers are all examples of enjoyable inventions that are present in the U.S. Unfortunately, the fun comes to an end when injuries occur, and injuries happen a lot. It’s estimated that trampoline accidents lead to 90,000 emergency room visits each year. Recent news suggests an increase in scooter usage may follow the trend.

How young workers act behind the wheel matters greatly

Many Louisiana businesses have younger workers on their staff. Sometimes, companies have such employees perform job duties that require driving. Issues regarding driving inexperience and immaturity can sometimes raise concerns regarding how responsibly such workers will act behind the wheel.
