Although the summer officially started just a little under a month ago, it feels like it started longer ago here than that in North Carolina. Heat doesn't just impact our bodies, but also how your vehicle performs. There are also more construction workers, vacationers and teens out driving around during this time of the year. This only adds to the congestion on the road. All of this can make for dangerous conditions as you navigate Goldsboro city streets.
U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) statistics show there were as many as 145,000 warehouse workers here in North Carolina and around the country as of 2011. Worker injuries are sadly commonplace in these facilities. They often result in employees missing time from work and pay in the process. There are some trends as to when these injuries occur.
