Personal Protective Equipment for construction sites

Employers and workers may greatly reduce the chance of injuries on a Louisiana construction site by following safety protocols and using proper equipment. Adequate Personal Protective Equipment is essential for every person who works on a construction site. There are several types of PPE designed to protect an individual from injuries. Some kinds of PPE provide general protection in a construction environment while other types help maintain safety in specific situations.

The dangers of taking selfies while driving

As drivers are navigating the Louisiana roadways alongside large commercial trucks, motorcyclists and other vehicles, it may seem common sense that their focus should remain on the road. Yet, an alarming number of motorists find it acceptable to use their cellphones while behind the wheel. This occurs even after a number of social campaigns have emerged notifying motorists of the dangers associated with using their cellphones while driving. Thousands of people are killed and injured every year as a result of distracted driving. One trend is taking cellphone use a step further and involves people taking selfies of themselves driving and posting the pics on social media platforms. 

Why driving at night is more deadly

Once the sun sets in Louisiana, drivers still fill the roadways. Many people are coming home from work, running errands and escaping their home for a night out with friends. As a result, the roads can still be quite busy, even in low light conditions. What you may not realize is that you face an increased danger when driving at night than during the day. AAA reports that you are three times more likely to die in a car accident during nighttime hours than you are during the day. So what exactly is to blame for this increased risk and what can you do about it?
