Holiday Safety

Holiday-Safety
What do the Holidays mean to you? Do you think about time with your family, time off of work, lots of food and presents, snow falling and carolers caroling? Those are all highlights of the holiday season! What a lot of us don't think about, however, is how we can maximize the bright highlights of the holiday season all while minimizing the potential hazards that go hand-in-hand with this time of year.

Distracted Driving - A Firsthand Account

Distracted-driving-firsthand
The inspiration for this week's safety blog topic was a result of an accident I witnessed on my way in to work recently. I was almost to the Thruway entrance and was nearly cut off by an electrical contractor's truck; which a minute later failed to yield right of way and made a left turn directly into the driver's side of an oncoming pickup truck. The pickup truck was pushed nearly 20 feet, and the explosion of glass was so incredible I was sure that the driver was going to need medical assistance. As I pulled to the side of the road and dialed 911 I saw both drivers exit their vehicles; the pickup truck driver was crawling out of the passenger side of his. I crossed the street to make sure everyone was ok and I heard the electrical contractor state to another witness "I guess I was just distracted by the thoughts of all I had to do at work today."
