  • Does your HR Wellness & Benefits Program address the most dangerous activity your employees do every day? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2013, 76.4% of workers 16 years and older drove alone on their commute to and from work, and another almost 10% carpooled. As something that most do every single day, Driver Safety seems to be overlooked when it comes to other Wellness Programs. Most HR Wellness Programs focus on individual health, including healthy eating and regular exercise, and some incorporate financial and emotional wellness. ​ Recent studies have shown that workers stress over their finances while at work, and that stress carries on through their commute home. Over-worrying can dominate thought and cause distraction for your

  • The same technology that is used for scanning and modeling human forms for use in computer gaming is now being used to create vitrual test dummies for simulated crash testing analysis. The benefits include the ability to test with a wider array of human shapes and sizes, cheaper non-destructive testing, both allowing for a wider set of results for analysis. Unlike crash dummies, which can only be positioned by shoving their hips and heads into limited positions, virtual human models can be morphed into a variety of configurations. Even data-based grasp predictions are possible, when calculating grasp motions for ergonomic applications and modeling virtual shapes. Current "crash test dummies" only represent a portion of the population. Virtual testing allows engineers

  • A recent Traffic Safety Facts summary report from the NHTSA [pdf] anticipates the increase crash severity rate for 2012 may be the highest since 1979. A statistical projection of traffic fatalities for the first quarter of 2012 shows that an estimated 7,630 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes. This represents a significant increase of about 13.5 percent as compared to the 6,720 fatalities that were projected to have occurred in the first quarter of 2011... [download the pdf] The projects are made using a statical measure for making early estimates, the same methods for estimating crash rates for the last three year. Actual crash data lags by a year or more, as it's collected from the various sources and

  • New traffic light technology displayed at 117th annual International Municipal Signal Association earlier this month in Orlando promises to help drivers avoid the panic-inducing "dilemma zone", caused when the traffic light has turned yellow, and the driver must decide to either slam on their brakes and risk a rear-end collision, or run a red-light. The new technology called "TrafiRadar", created by Belgium-based Traficon, will extend the duration of yellow light depending on road traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists in the intersection. "Vulnerable road users in general, and bicyclists more specifically, just need more time than motorists to make it across the intersection," said Traficon USA vice president Bill Klyczek. "By detecting bicyclists at signalized intersections, we can increase their green time
