Poor health can lead to higher crash risk for truck drivers

Ohio motorists may want to know that commercial truck drivers with three or more health problems are more likely to be involved in traffic accidents. A study found that many truck drivers have trouble staying healthy because they are sedentary for long periods of time and often develop poor eating and sleeping habits.

Sharing the road with commercial trucks

If you find yourself changing lanes, slowing down or making similar efforts to keep from having to drive near semi-trucks, you are not alone. Given the sheer size of such vehicles, they are prone to obstructing your vision, and this is one of many reasons motorists often try and avoid them on the roadway altogether.

Trump order delays new driver training rule

In response to a memorandum issued by President Trump, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has officially announced the delay of a new rule that would establish truck driver training standards in Ohio and nationwide. The rule was scheduled to take effect on Feb. 6 and was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 8, 2016.

Changes in workers' compensation may be ahead

Workers' compensation in Ohio and throughout the country could be affected by the 2016 presidential election. For example, under the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Labor had recommended a revamp of the workers' compensation system that would set minimum standards for state programs. However, with a new administration in place that favors less government involvement, those changes might not be coming.
