Diesel exhaust fumes can cause oilfield workplace accidents

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recently reminded employers in the oil and gas industry nationwide, including Texas, about the potential consequences of diesel exhaust exposure. Along with the health problems posed by the diesel particulate matter (DPM) contents of the diesel exhaust fumes come the risks of workplace accidents. The short-term effects of such exposure could be distractive enough to jeopardize the abilities of workers involved in tasks that require precision.

Defective products leave contractor dead; lawsuit filed

Many Texas residents and others around the country use natural gas in their homes. Various mechanical pieces are used to tap into the gas lines to connect to the houses. Homeowners go about their days, assuming that these connections have been made properly and that the parts were manufactured correctly. However, as within any industry, defective products sometimes enter the marketplace and can have catastrophic results when used in gas lines. A lawsuit has been filed in another state against Honeywell and other parties after an explosion in a home resulted in the death of a contractor.

Pedestrian deaths continue to rise

Walking is great exercise. Not only does it help your heart, but it also gets you outdoors and in the Texas sunshine. Fitness trackers tell you how many steps you have left to reach the recommended 10,000 per day, and you may take advantage of your lunch hour or proximity to a friend's house to get out and walk.

Carbon Monoxide Exposure in Hotels

As exemplified by a recent incident in Nashville, Tennessee, all too often hotel guests find themselves having to be evacuated because of exposure to carbon monoxide.  Sadly, some don't make it out of the hotel alive, and others suffer long term debilitating effects from the carbon monoxide exposure. 

Fires Caused by Home Appliances

According to news reports, at around 10 p.m. on November 2, 2018, a two alarm building fire broke out in a townhouse in southwest Houston, killing one man and injuring his 36-year-old son.  Wyatt Law Firm, Ltd. (www.wyattlawfirm.com) expresses our condolences to the family and our hope that the son's injuries are not life threatening.

Avoiding the tragedy of an apartment fire

A homeowner can do many things to protect the home and its occupants. Installing smoke detectors, alarm systems and other safety devices is one step, and keeping the home and premises free from hazards is another. However, if you live in an apartment, you may not have as much control over your own safety.

New data should increase understanding of workplace accidents

Employers in Texas and throughout the country are expected to provide safe environments for their workers at their job sites. Government and industry standards are often rigorous, depending on the type of business. Unfortunately, even with these standards, workplace accidents still routinely occur. To better understand the types and frequencies of accidents and how to prevent them, a section about the workplace has been added to the database of injury facts published by the National Safety Council.
