The health of commercial truck drivers

South Carolina motorists may benefit from knowing that commercial truck drivers with at least three health conditions have four times the chances of getting into a crash than healthier ones. This conclusion is based on the results of a study conducted at the University of Utah School of Medicine. The study also found that truck drivers have trouble staying in good health because of their poor eating and sleeping habits and the long periods of time they tend to be in a sitting position.

OSHA updates fall protection rules for general industry

South Carolina workers in construction and other industries have updated rules to follow to prevent falls.

Fourth of July a deadly holiday for motorists

The insurance company Travelers says that for the days leading up to the holiday and on the day itself, insurance claims are 7 percent higher than they are for the Labor Day and Memorial Day holiday weekends.
