Workers at risk of contaminated eyewash water

Staying safe at a job site includes a combination of accepted procedures followed by the employer as well as the actions employees take. However, there sometimes are details that are overlooked, such as maintaining eyewash water stations, which can lead to contamination and result in worker injuries. Pennsylvania workers should be aware of the risks they face if the eyewash station at their work site is not properly maintained.

Technology delays could harm Pennsylvania workers

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, only three train companies, one of which is in Pennsylvania, have submitted plans to upgrade safety technology by the end of the year. The technology is called positive train control, and railroad companies throughout the country were expected to have equip their trains with PTC by Dec. 31. The technology relies on a GPS system in addition to other equipment that can automatically slow and stop trains.
