If you work in a warehouse setting, you know that danger lurks around every corner. You may even have been part of an accident in the past.

Why older workers are killed on the job more than younger ones

In an era in which fewer workers are able to retire as young as they once were able to do, the American job market finds itself with an abundance of workers continuing to stay on their jobs past the age of 65.

Recent statistics published by the Department of Labor (DOL) suggest that this trend is expected to continue. By 2024, it's estimated that at least 25 percent of the country's workforce will be age 65 and older.

3 risks of operating a boat while intoxicated

Boating is a great pastime to enjoy on one of the many lakes in and surrounding the greater Atlanta area. This is especially true as the heat of summer sets in and the cool breeze of the water beckons. Oftentimes, however, relaxing and boating may also involve drinking — and this can result in more trouble than fun. Though it seems innocuous, there are actually a number of risks involved.

The following three are the most common risks associated with boating while under the influence. Boating is fun in and of itself, so there is no reason to add alcohol to the mix and endanger yourself and others. 

Top tips for driving in a traffic jam

Depending on where you live and work, there is a good chance that you spend some time in traffic jams every day of the week.

While there is nothing fun about sitting in a traffic jam, here's something to remember: You need to pay attention to what's going on around you at all times. Neglecting to do so will increase the likelihood of an accident.

Floor conditions that can cause an indoor slip-and-fall accident

With so much going on around you, it's difficult to watch every step you take. This doesn't mean you are lazy, but it could lead to a slip-and-fall accident. Even if you're careful of what you are doing, you could still suffer this type of fall.

Floor conditions are often the culprit of an indoor slip-and-fall accident, with this including but not limited to:

  • Failure to provide warning, such as the use of a sign, that the floor is wet or damp.
  • Failure to provide a barrier to keep people away from wet floors or some other type of danger.
  • Using too much polish or wax.
  • Applying polish or wax in an uneven manner.
  • Applying any type of floor treatment to a sloped part of the floor.
  • Neglecting to use a non-skid floor treatment when necessary (such as in the entryway of a building).

4 signs of nursing home abuse to watch for

When caring for your elderly relations becomes too much for you to handle, it is often easiest to turn to a nursing home or some type of assisted living facility. This means that you trust the care and well-being of your loved ones to the facility's staff. Unfortunately, some do not take this responsibility seriously.

Many Americans are abused or neglected in facilities all over the country. You should always be aware what to watch for if you are concerned about how a facility is treating your family member when you are not around.

Workplace accidents and third-party claims

When you arrive at work, you hope that you remain safe until your shift comes to an end. While this is typically the way things work, there is always the potential for an accident to occur.

If you suffer a workplace injury, you need to learn more about your legal rights. While many people assume that a workers' compensation claim is the best way to move forward, this isn't always the case. You may be able to make a third-party claim.
