Brooklyn gas station could pose risk to schoolchildren

Brooklyn pedestrians are facing danger when they walk along the streets, according to some local parents concerned about the traffic near a gas station on Fourth Avenue. The service station is located near an elementary school in the Sunset Park neighborhood, and parents say that children and families walking to and from the school a block away often must dodge cars racing to get gas. Many times, the cars actually drive up on the sidewalk in violation of traffic laws.

Study shows speeding to blame for increase in traffic deaths

Many New York residents may already be aware that traffic deaths across the U.S. have continued to increase over the last few years. However, many traffic experts are not entirely sure why. While some may theorize that the overall increase in driving and the use of smartphones by both motorists and pedestrians are to blame, another study has determined that speeding is the major factor.

When people should report accidents in New York

Each year in New York, thousands of motor vehicle accidents happen. When people are involved in accidents, they might wonder whether they are required to report them or if they can instead handle them on their own without police involvement. It is important for drivers to understand their requirements for reporting accidents.

The benefits of wearable technology on risky job sites

Wearable technology may help keep New York workers safe while also reducing insurance costs. A tool developed by Triax Technologies is designed to be worn on a worker's tool belt, and it tracks that person's location wherever he or she goes. Those who are responsible for job site safety stay updated about a worker's whereabouts through a mesh internet system.

Third-party lawsuits in the construction industry

The construction industry is notorious for being one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Workers face everything from falls to exposure to toxic chemicals and harsh weather. In 2015, over 21 percent of all employee deaths were in construction alone, and fatalities in this sector increased by nearly 6 percent in 2016, records the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

OSHA to promote female construction worker safety

While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is known for upholding safety regulations among all sorts of industries, it sometimes partners with other organizations to take on specific problems in high-hazard industries. In New York and elsewhere, the construction industry is considered one of the most dangerous, and this is especially true for female workers. In response to this, OSHA has renewed an alliance with the National Association of Women in Construction.
