Study looks at distracted drivers among workers

Mobile workers, or workers who drive as part of their jobs, may often operate what is known as "gray fleets." This is the word for vehicles driven by employees for work-related reasons that do not belong the company. It is likely that gray fleet mobile workers in New York drive more than the average person. A study by the company Motus found that mobile workers drive 49 percent more than other workers.

When is force by police unreasonable?

Many continue to be confused about what type of behavior is considered unreasonable, and when victims should think about taking action against law enforcement for the way they were treated by police officers.

Supermarket slip-and-falls can be dangerous

New York shoppers may be all too aware of the dangers that could lurk on the supermarket floor, but it is still necessary to go out for groceries. This underlies the responsibility of store owners to provide a safe environment for their customers who come to buy much-needed goods. Because of the products involved and the fast flow of traffic at a grocery store, ongoing maintenance is necessary to avoid potentially dangerous accidents. Spills and debris on the floor can be disastrous for customers who step in the wrong place and fall as a result.

Falls from height can happen at work

If you work in the construction industry in the state of New York, you have a significantly higher risk of being injured while in the workplace than, say, an office worker. This is because there are many hazards that are associated with construction sites. These include the operation and presence of heavy machinery, toxic chemicals, the danger of falling objects and structures, and, of course, the propensity for workers to work from heights.
