Survey on texting and driving finds mixed attitudes

Some West Virginia motorists may feel that they are comfortable texting and driving, but many drivers also feel that it is unsafe for others to do so. Progressive Insurance conducted a survey in August 2017 and received about 1,000 responses from drivers who were at least 18.

Concussion and brain injury can be different for women

Women in West Virginia may be interested in information about how brain injuries affect them differently than men. A professor of neurosurgery at UCLA says that women are more likely to experience concussions and can have symptoms that last longer. Most research into concussions has been focused on men, so the reasons that women experience concussions differently are unclear.

Always using headlights can reduce accidents

Every year in West Virginia, thousands of people are seriously injured in traffic accidents. Some of these accidents could be prevented if everyone drove with their headlights on during the day. While laws in Europe and Canada require motorists to drive with their headlights on during the day, there are no similar laws in the U.S.

Making safer work environments

West Virginia employees may wish to learn about new perspectives emerging in the field of workplace accident prevention. Employers in the past have often only recorded and taken action about incidents that directly resulted in a serious injury, but this approach may not be the most effective. According to a number of safety advocates, it's also advisable to record even potential accidents and work to improve workplace safety conditions overall.
