Current HOS rules blamed for rise in trucking deaths

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported 4,761 large-truck fatalities in 2017, marking a 9 percent increase from 2016 and a 29-year high. At the same time, motor vehicle crash deaths in general went down 2 percent. Many in the trucking industry in New York and across the U.S. believe that several factors are involved in this trend, the first having to do with federal hours-of-service guidelines.

Don't let fear of retaliation keep you quiet about harassment

Many people who face sexual harassment in their workplace are reticent to report it. Even though there may be clear reporting policies in the corporate handbook, these employees still worry about the potential for retaliation or inaction on the part of their company. Unfortunately, they have good reason to feel concerned.

Reduce the risk of accidental death

Young people in New York and across the United States may face unexpected dangers from the most mundane sources. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the leading cause of death for Americans age 44 and under is accidental injury. In 2016, 61,749 people lost their lives due to unintentional incidents, almost twice the number of lives taken by cancer and heart disease combined. Most of these accidental deaths stemmed from unintentional poisonings and motor vehicle crashes.
