Issues that cause ladder falls

In the construction industry, one of the biggest dangers workers face is taking a fall from a ladder. It could be as simple as slipping off of a six-foot ladder while putting in some overhead wiring or as significant as falling from a 30-foot extension ladder while climbing onto a roof. Any fall, from any height, can cause serious injuries and even death.

Turns through a crosswalk put pedestrians in danger

As a pedestrian, the first thing you should do to stay safe is to always obey the signals at a crosswalk. Do not try to dart across the road just because it looks clear. Wait for the walk signal, when you know you have the right of way and cars have been stopped at the light.

Why do trucking companies use two-way dash cameras?

The need for a dash camera on a truck -- or any other vehicle -- is fairly clear. A lot of traffic accidents come down to two people's accounts of what happened. If you have camera footage of the incident, it can help back up your claims when you say the other driver caused the crash and they point the finger at you.
