Reporting an OSHA violation in the workplace

When companies in Maryland recognize a hazard that could affect the safety and well-being of their employees, they have the responsibility of immediately working to prevent the hazard from turning into a danger. Often, this process requires them to investigate and analyze the environment or process that is under question and then develop protocols that can be implemented to provide protection and eliminate the danger. 

Numerous red flags lead to ousting of hospital management

Each day, numerous medical patients in Maryland rely on their health care provider to give them the kind of high-quality care that will enable them to have access to a treatment plan that meets their personal needs. However, there are times when for various reasons from poor communication to deliberate ignorance, that doctors are unable to protect their patients. 

Can background checks help you hire better truckers?

Your fleet of truck drivers in Maryland is an integral part of your company's operation and ability to maintain a successful organization. As such, you spend considerable time recruiting and hiring truckers that reflect the characteristics and qualities that your company strives to uphold. The efforts you put into performing background checks on your candidates, as well as the requirements you establish for them, may be able to provide a better guarantee that they will provide value to your company and not participate in dangerous or negligent driving behaviors. 

What are never events?

Maryland doctors are only human, and just like every other human, they too are susceptible to errors. However, whereas some errors are harmless and the result of a moment of fatigue or a slight oversight, others are so significant that they are often fatal. Many of these errors are the result of negligence, and the healthcare industry dubs many of them "Never Events."

Hands-free cellphones: A major form of distraction

In Maryland, and in many other states across the nation, it is illegal to talk on a hand-held cellphone while behind the wheel. This practice has led to more than 391,000 injuries and 3,450 deaths from distracted driving car accidents in 2016 alone. When people talk on their cellphones while driving, their minds cannot focus on the road and are slow to respond to any hazards that they may encounter. As a way to stay in compliance with the ban on hand-held cellphones, some drivers have started using hands-free cellular devices. Studies show, however, then even hands-free cellphones are a major source of cognitive distraction.
