Keeping nurses safe in South Carolina

In the United States, there are approximately 18 million people who work in the health care field. Of those 18 million, 80 percent are women, and there are many dangers that they face at work each day. However, there are some commonsense tips that South Carolina nurses can take to avoid getting hurt. One step that can be taken is to avoid sharp objects or to use them with care.

Protecting against reproductive health issues

South Carolina workers are likely aware that coming into contact with chemicals or working in extreme heat can cause health issues. However, they may not be aware that they could cause issues with a man's reproductive health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are several factors that could factor into whether or not exposure will create such an issue. For instance, those who haven't been exposed for a long period of time may not be harmed.

Car data loggers may determine who is at fault in a crash

When a South Carolina motorist becomes involved in a single-vehicle car accident, it can be easy to want to blame the car. However, cars made by Tesla Motors make it much more difficult to deflect fault for the accident. One owner of a Tesla Model X SUV found this out after claiming that the vehicle suddenly accelerated on its own and crashed into a building.

Teen drivers and accident risk

For teen drivers, Memorial Day marks the beginning of what AAA calls the "100 deadliest days" on the road in South Carolina and across the nation. During this period, accidents involving teen motorists between the ages of 16 and 19 increase and deaths are 16 percent higher than any other time of year. Over the past five years, an average of 1,022 people have died annually in accidents involving teen drivers during this time. One reason why teens cause so many accidents is there propensity for cell phone use.

Slaughterhouse injuries may be under-reported

Those in the South Carolina slaughterhouse industry may know that slaughterhouses are much safer than they are historically known to be. However, a government report indicating slaughterhouse safety may not show all of the risks that those who work in meat and poultry slaughterhouses face every day.
