How new technology can prevent drunk driving accidents

New technology is in the process of development that could prevent drunk driving by detecting a driver's blood alcohol content and preventing the car from starting if it is above .08 percent, which is the legal limit in North Carolina and all other states. Many hope that the technology will be made available as a safety feature in new vehicles once it is approved.

OSHA aiming to reduce the amount of nursing injuries

According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, more workplace injuries happen in the health care realm than in any other industry. This has caused the agency to extend its National Emphasis Program on Nursing and Residential Care Facilities. OSHA may investigate residential care facilities and hospitals in North Carolina and other states to address the large number of nurses who get hurt while on the job.
