Car accidents major cause of deaths worldwide

Many people in Georgia are deeply troubled by the growing number of traffic fatalities found on the roads. This is far from a local concern, however; global health experts at the World Health Organization have identified traffic-related deaths as a major worldwide problem. Across the globe, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 5 and 29. Across all age groups, crashes are the eighth most common cause of death, outstripping HIV and tuberculosis on the list of fatal global health concerns. In 2016 alone, 1.35 million people lost their lives in car crashes, a statistic cited by the WHO in its 2018 Global Status Report on Road Safety.

Improving retail worker conditions during the holidays

Retail workers in Georgia, including both permanent and temporary ones, are often the busiest during the holiday season. OSHA is reminding company owners to protect retail workers' safety and pay during the annual holiday rush. After all, this is the time of year when customer traffic typically increases, which can boost the potential for work-related injuries. Part-time workers may also have issues with receiving proper compensation, especially from retailers not accustomed to routinely hiring seasonal workers.
