Getting injured workers back to their job

When workers get hurt, it should be a team effort to get them back on the job as quickly as possible. This means that the workers and employers work together with doctors and the insurance company as a cohesive unit with the goal of helping that employee heal. However, a return-to-work plan is only worthwhile if employees believe in it and are willing to buy in.

The high cost of drowsy driving

South Carolina motorists should be aware of the serious threat presented by drowsy driving. In 2015 alone, approximately 5,000 people were killed as a result of car accidents involving drowsy drivers. Nearly 83.6 million Americans are sleep-deprived when they get behind the wheel each day.

Trying to to improve driver safety

Law enforcement agencies in South Carolina and throughout North America will be on the lookout for those who are driving in an unsafe manner. According to the Large Truck Crash Causation Study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 88 percent of all commercial truck crashes are caused by drivers acting in an unsafe manner. Furthermore, 93 percent of all crashes involving passenger vehicles are due to unsafe motoring.

Driving while distracted

Many drivers in South Carolina and the rest of the nation are facing more distractions while on the road. In addition to such distractions as eating, texting and talking on a cell phone, drivers are now routinely accessing social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
