Study: school start times may influence teen driver safety

Teens are as liable as anyone else to become distracted behind the wheel, and lack of sleep is one factor that can raise the risk for this. Lack of sleep, in turn, can be aggravated by an early start to school each day. Connecticut residents should know about a study that suggests that pushing back school start times can reduce the rate of car crashes involving teens.

Steps to take to keep lab workers safe

According to OSHA, there are more than 500,000 workers employed by labs in throughout the United States. Connecticut laboratory workers may face a variety of hazards such as walking on a busy loading dock or coming into contact with potentially toxic chemicals. They may also be exposed to toxic waste or other materials that could be harmful to their health. The OSHA Lab Standard was created to ensure that non-production lab workers were protected from recognized hazards that could harm them.

The factors that help create quality workplace safety cultures

It is a contractor's responsibility to make sure that its workers have access to the training and tools necessary to keep them safe. A study revealed that most contractors in Connecticut and throughout the country use supervisors to conduct training courses. Typically, supervisors are trained through a 30-hour course offered by OSHA. However, this course may not necessarily be adequate on its own. The Foundations for Safety Leadership training module is lauded as a quality training tool by contractors that have used it.

Work-related falls cost the nation about $7 billion every year in workers' compensation claims and medical treatments, yet fall protection violations are the most widespread of all OSHA violations.
