The Medical Field Is At High Risk For Work-Related Injuries

Each year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases a report concerning occupational injuries and illnesses. The report calculated how many injuries and illnesses are suffered per every 100 full time workers in various fields. The top finishers make up the most dangerous places to work, in terms of the likelihood of being hurt or getting sick while doing the job. Three of the top four and four of the top six most dangerous professions involve the medical field. The job that suffered the highest rate of injury and illness per 100 full time workers was nursing and residential care in a state government run facility.

A New Method For Reducing Accidents Caused By Young Drivers

Though the measure led to significant controversy and complaints, New Jersey passed a law requiring young drivers subject to the graduated licensing law to have little red decals placed on their license plates. According to researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the first year of the program led to a significant reduction in car crashes suffered by teen drivers. The small red stickers made it easier to identify drivers who were still in the probationary period and helped police enforce the provisions of the graduated licensing program.
