Shift work leads to drowsy driving even on short commutes

Night shift work is an unavoidable part of some California industries. In fact, more than 9.5 million people across the U.S. work a night or rotational shift. Studies have shown, though, that disrupting the sleep-wake cycle in this way leads to serious problems like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. It also leads to drowsy driving.

Blind spots in the workplace

California residents who work at places like loading docks or giant fulfillment warehouses may be aware that there are blind spots in their work areas. They may also know that navigating the heavy equipment used to move around products can result in collisions when the equipment is used in the areas with insufficient visibility.

Ensuring the safety of older workers in California

Safety training is important in any industry that involves physical labor, especially when the workforce spans three or sometimes four generations. The presence of older workers reflects the fact that more and more people are deferring retirement past the traditional 60-to-65 age range.

Fall protection tops OSHA violations list

Employers in California and around the country are more likely to be cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for fall protection violations than any other workplace safety issue according to a report from the National Safety Council. The nonprofit advocacy group brings attention to safety matters in the United States and focuses much of its efforts on workplace accident prevention. The completed report is scheduled to be released in December, but experts do not expect the final draft to differ substantially from the preliminary version that was issued in September.
