Vehicle collision avoidance systems reduce crashes

Missouri drivers whose vehicles include collision avoidance systems such as alerts for blind spots and drifting into another lane may have fewer accidents than drivers who do not have these systems. A study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that in 2015, single-vehicle head-on crashes and sideswipes were lower by 11 percent in vehicles that had these systems. For injury crashes of the same type, the rate was 21 percent lower.

Study says companies' safety reporting lacks consistency

Some Missouri employees likely work for companies that lack consistent methods for tracking and reporting injuries, illnesses and fatalities in the workplace. According to a report released by the Center for Safety and Health Sustainability, organizations in the Corporate Knights' Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations have done little to improve compliance with safety reporting standards since 2013. That was the year the previous report was released.

A common pipe repair technique may be hazardous to workers

A popular method of water main repair in Missouri and across the country may be hazardous to the health of workers and possibly the general public. The repair technique, called cured-in-place repair, may release noxious chemicals when it is applied.

Car drivers are to blame for most truck accidents

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 5,000 road users are killed around the country each year in truck accidents. Missouri media outlets often cover these accidents when many lives have been lost and distracted, tired or intoxicated truck drivers have been blamed, but the data suggests that it is passenger vehicle drivers who are more likely to be responsible. The DOT data reveals that about 70 percent of the crashes involving large trucks each year are caused by reckless or negligent car drivers.
