Many trucking companies across the country are cutting corners on safety in exchange for a bigger bottom line. This leads to unfit truckers driving unmaintained trucks, and becoming involved in serious truck accidents.
This video addresses the workings of dangerous trucking companies, and what the lawyers of the Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable are doing to combat this hazardous behavior — and prevent future truck crashes.
The Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable is a new kind of law firm, comprised of some of the most experienced and respected trucking attorneys from around the nation working together on your case. We will discover each trucking safety violation that led to the crash, hold the company accountable and make sure you get the best result possible.
Remember, our law firm is so committed to truck safety that we give a portion of every fee we make directly to trucking safety advocacy groups.

Michael Courouleau is an environmental and safety professional with extensive experience in industrial safety.
Q: We’ve come a long way as far as workplace safety. What are some areas that people might still neglect?
Michael Courouleau: Accidents during disaster recovery are still very common.
Q: What special hazards does a disaster recovery situation present?
Michael Courouleau: Electrical dangers, collapse or partial collapse of compromised buildings, stress and overwork from trying to get a facility reopened as quickly as possible.
Q: Do floodwaters present a special set of dangers?
Michael Courouleau: Absolutely. Floodwaters are contaminated to start with, making the threat of infection pretty extreme.
Q: What precautions should workers and crews take in post-hurricane situations?
Michael Courouleau: Supervisors should be mindful of not taking shortcuts or getting in too big a hurry. That’s how injuries happen. Crews should be very wary of flooded buildings in terms of structural safety and electrical hazards.
Q: Are floodwaters breeding grounds for insects?
Michael Courouleau: Yes, crews should be careful of not only mosquito bites, but also snakebites and even leeches in flooding situations.
Q: What’s another seldom-thought-of danger in the workplace?
Michael Courouleau: Combustible dust is a huge danger in places like grain elevators.
Q: What can be done about it?
Michael Courouleau: Ventilation, water mist setups, sprinklers, airborne dust density monitoring and fire suppression setups are all very important.
Q: What kinds of materials can become combustible dust, in the right concentrations?
Michael Courouleau: Flour, grain dust, sawdust, sugar, sugar byproducts, tobacco, metal shavings, even dried blood can be potentially hazardous combustible dust.
Q: What are the points in the process where combustible dust can be found in greater concentrations?
Michael Courouleau: Places like loading and unloading points or transfer points will typically stir up more airborne particles.
Q: What sorts of systems should be in place at those points?
Michael Courouleau: Air monitors are typically used there, keeping tabs on airborne dust and sending readings back to a control console.
Q: How do those work?
Michael Courouleau: When densities reach a certain point, water mist systems will kick on to reduce the concentration. Some systems will even automatically shut down machinery to give dust time to settle.
Q: Aren’t there ignition sources as well?
Michael Courouleau: Yes, there’s a special set of precautions to be taken with things like motors and switches.
Q: Can static electricity be an ignition source?
Michael Courouleau: Yes, natural fibers should be worn in these settings.
Q: What is a general piece of advice you can give?
Michael Courouleau: Remember that knowledge is power when it comes to safety in the workplace. Educate your workforce on safety protocols, keep MSDS sheets available, and offer incentives for workplace safety.

This political propaganda video about nuclear energy promotes a variety of now dated ideas about the promise of atomic power. According to the film, the Public Health Service and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission would like to inform the public about nuclear energy and the risks to health and life. Nuclear energy, produced by nuclear power plants, is being used as a source of heat, light, and power to cities, industry, and in the propulsion of ships. It is also used in agriculture and medical research. This is all a great catalogue of the history of nuclear power.
There are three main categories of nuclear energy which are Aerospace Nuclear Reactor Test, Plowshare Program, and the Seismic Research Program. The Aerospace Nuclear Reactor Test is creating engines to propel rockets to outer space. The Plowshare Program is developing nuclear power to compete with oil, coal, and natural gas. The initial investment is high; however, can pay off in the long haul. They are also looking into how to use underground explosions for construction means. The Seismic Research Program is looking to improve methods of underground detonations. They are currently detonating with seismic readings all around the world to study the recordings. While doing all this, they always make sure to check if the local drinking water has been contaminated. They must see if there is any surface radiation.
The Atomic Energy Commission has partnered with the Public Health Service, Weather Bureau, the Geological Survey, Coast and Geodetic Survey, and the Bureau of Mines. These groups are all working together to protect public health, and shockingly downplay the effects of nuclear radiation.
The Atomic Energy Commission makes programs to inform the public, specifically the near the test area. They use any sort of media to get their message out there so the people are informed. Public officials, school administrators, and other groups and informed based on their specific needs.
The commission is constantly monitoring for radiation. Ground crews are ready at a moment’s notice to scan the areas. Film badges are places all over towns to monitor each portion of town. They sample indigenous foods, soil, milk, and potable and other water supplies. The researchers specifically look at underground water supplies. They will monitor those for up to five years.
Farmers are also informed about what might specifically happen to their livestock. The commission has been running tests for years now. They even allow a sample heard to live near the research area where fissions products are known to be. Sometimes a cow is sacrificed, and (unrealistically) researchers have yet to find any significant affects from radiation yet.
This video, which expounds upon myths about radiation safety, is amazingly biased - but that's where its historical significance lies. This film is not a good source for facts on nuclear energy. It is, however, an excellent source for historical evidence of political propaganda and how governments can turn a blind eye to the dangers and harmful effects of radiation. Media misinformation at its finest.
Formula 1 is justly famous for high technology, speed and excitement, but it is arguably the progress made in the field of safety which has been the sport's most remarkable achievement in recent decades.
The Strange Ones is a creepy movie that follows the children of Culver City as they play in empty lots and lonely junkyards, surrounded by pedophiles hiding in the shadows. When a little girl, Karen, accepts candy from a stranger and then gets into his car, the police must rescue her and explain about the dangers of “the strange ones.” A policewoman informs Karen that some people are “sick in the mind,” and want to hurt little children like her. She gives advice about how to avoid these people, and how to protect yourself if you are in a bad situation. This film confronts an extremely serious subject, but audiences of today will find the stereotyped characters, hapless victims, and melodramatic scary music over-the-top and at times even humorous.
