Winter safety tips for construction sites

As a seasoned construction worker, you already know the dangers lurking at the job site. Uncovered holes, live electrical wires, unstable scaffolding, and the occasional hammer that falls from two floors up are just a few of the things you are constantly dodging at work.

Study shows patients with female doctors have better outcomes

New York residents who are hospitalized may be interested to learn that they are more likely to survive if their primary doctor is a woman. According to a report published on Dec. 19 in an American Medical Association journal, patients who were treated by a female physician had a slightly lower relative risk of dying prematurely. They also had a lower risk of being readmitted to a hospital after being discharged.

The risks of drowsy driving

New York motorists should be aware that driving while drowsy or sleepy presents just as much danger as getting behind the wheel while distracted or intoxicated. According to a report released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, drivers who have slept no more than five or six hours within a 24-hour span are two times more likely to get in a crash as people who have gotten seven hours or more.

Be sure to take the right steps after a car accident

If you spend any time on the roads of New York City or the surrounding area, you know that it can be a challenge to avoid trouble. Even when you're following the rules of the road and driving in a defensive manner, it doesn't mean that other drivers are doing the same.

Safety during hot work

New York residents who are in occupations that require the use of hot work should take the necessary precautions to remain safe. Welding, brazing, soldering, grinding and cutting require the use of hot work equipment that can expose people to the risk of fire. Fires can be started by the leaks of flammable gases or the ignition of combustible materials into the workplace.
