Vibration can damage the hands of workers

Although many South Carolina residents recognize that extended exposure to vibration can lead to unusual physical sensations, construction and manufacturing workers should be aware that work-related exposure could result in permanent damage. Symptoms of hand-arm vibration syndrome may include numbness and pain, which might be mistaken for other common ailments. Blanched fingers distinguish HAVS from conditions such as cervical neuropathy and carpal tunnel syndrome, which can also lead to numbness in the hands.

Workplace noise can damage hearing over time

Construction workers in South Carolina are often exposed to workplace noise that can cause permanent hearing loss. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration calls workplace noise a stealth long-term hazard, because exposure to moderate noise levels can cause gradual hearing loss over a long period of time.

South Carolina teen drivers and new NHTSA ads

South Carolina residents may have seen a 2015 campaign launched as a partnership between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council, which has targeted the prevalence of drunk driving among teenagers. As part of National Teen Driver Safety Week, the campaign features advertisements that compare drunk driving to teenage 'party fouls. The purpose of the campaign is to help teenage drivers become aware of how much more serious the consequences of drunk driving are compared to these party fouls.
