Staying safe on New Year’s Eve

You may be planning a memorable celebration to ring in the New Year. While there is nothing wrong with having a good time with friends and family, there is always the chance of an accident when alcohol is involved. At Bendall & Mednick, we would like you and other Schenectady residents to not only have a great New Year’s celebration, but to stay safe as well.

Are doctors’ sleep habits killing patients?

It is a known fact that doctors in New York and elsewhere work long hours to treat their patients, and their efforts are appreciated by many. However, we also understand that it is important for everyone to be well rested in order to do their jobs safely and effectively. For physicians, a good night’s sleep may be more important than ever. Unfortunately, the workload that is often placed on medical professionals, especially those in hospitals, may be hazardous to their patients’ health.

Federal and state truck driving hours are back up for debate

Fatigue is a serious problem that affects truck drivers across the country. Drowsy driving alone is often deadly, and can be even more dangerous when combined with additional hazards, such as icy roads or sun glare. In 2015, 126 people were killed in New York State in large truck accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This number was higher than the previous several years, indicating that there may be serious safety issues regarding the trucking industry and the general public.

Are trampoline parks completely safe?

The idea is a brilliant one, in addition to being fun: trampoline parks are places that contain trampolines of various sizes, in addition to other types of gym-like equipment, for people of all ages to play in. You and other Schenectady residents may have enjoyed an afternoon at one of these establishments for a date, a child’s birthday party or just a fun day out. What you may not realize is that although the management at trampoline parks take measures to keep patrons safe, serious injuries still occur at these places.

3 things you didn't know about ladder falls in the workplace

Working in construction can be hazardous, and as a new hire, you have a lot to learn. One of the tools you will need to use is a ladder. Ladders are handy by helping you reach heights without straining, but they can pose a real risk to workers on a job site. Missing a step could lead to falls. Working on an unstable ladder could result in it tipping or falling over, causing you to fall and injure yourself severely.

Winter weather hazards include deadly highway pile-ups

If you have lived in New York for any length of time, you already understand the inconveniences you face on the roads each winter, not to mention the dangers. Ice, snow and fog can cause even the most careful driver to get into an accident. At Bendall & Mednick, we are aware that the cold-weather dangers posed to Schenectady residents are especially severe on nearby highways.
