Safety warning: Personal watercraft have high accident rates

A personal watercraft (PWC) -- often called a Jet Ski, though that is a Kawasaki brand name -- offers a fun way to explore the waterways and coastlines in Florida, and people take these small, agile vehicles out all the time. They're fast, exciting, easy to transport and cheaper than a full-sized boat.

Fire watches can protect against devastating shipyard accidents

Working in a shipyard often means doing what the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) terms "hot work." This is anything that can create a spark or an open flame. A common example is the welding that is so important during structural work on a modern ship.

How often do personal watercraft incidents occur in Florida?

While most parts of the United States are chilly around this time of the year, Florida's eternal sunshine seems to keep things warm. If there's one downside to Florida being such an ideal location for people to come to for a vacation, it's that it entices so many to ride personal watercraft despite not knowing how to operate them. Individuals get hurt or killed in the state each year because of this.
