Safety Tips While Using Public Transportation

Public transportation has improved and certainly expanded over the last several years. However, there is still great potential for accidents and injuries on public transportation. If you have been injured in a public transportation accident, an experienced San Francisco personal injury attorney can help you determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

To help prevent an accident or injury while using public transportation the following safety tips may be helpful:

  1. Do not rush to board a bus or subway, this way you can avoid falling or slipping and becoming injured.
  2. As the bus or train approaches stand back from the edge of the platform or curb and stay a bit to the side to avoid being accidentally pushed or shoved off balance.
  3. Do not try to enter a subway car when the doors are closing and ensure packages, pocketbooks and backpacks are clear of closing doors after you have entered the train.
  4. Only use the emergency cord to prevent an accident or injury.
  5. Do not run or walk on escalators—stand, hold the rail and face forward. Improper use of escalators can cause serious injuries.
  6. Do not run for the bus—you can slip, trip or fall and sustain serious injuries.
  7. Do not stand in stairwells or lean against doors while traveling on a bus—sudden stops could cause you to fall and become injured.
  8. When boarding or leaving a bus watch for slippery surfaces, icy sidewalks or other hazards, which may cause you to fall.

Safety Tips to Prevent Gas Explosions

gas-line-safety

Gas explosions frequently occur on construction or other industrial sites due to the proximity of chemicals and other combustible materials. However, gas explosions can also happen at home. Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) is commonly used for home barbecues, RV appliances, and heating and cooking appliances. And while LPG has proven to be exceedingly useful for domestic purposes, it is also a frequent cause of gas explosions at home.

Depending on the nature and location of the explosion, the consequences can be devastating including:

  • Property damages—to vehicles, appliances and homes
  • Burn injuries—from minor to severe
  • Traumatic/emotional distress—such as PTSD or other psychological reactions
  • Death—from smoke inhalation and severe burns

To help avoid the risk of a gas explosion you should:

  • Keep LPG tanks or any other type of combustible away from flammable materials such as matches, lighters, lit candles, campfires, etc.
  • Turn off gas tanks when not in use.
  • Check tanks or other combustible material containers regularly for cracks, leaks or other potential hazards.
  • Do not leave cooking food unattended, including barbecue grills.
  • If you detect the smell of gas, do not turn on any type of electrical appliance because any kind of spark can ignite an explosion.

Gas explosions whether domestic or industrial can cause severe damage and injuries and give way to numerous San Francisco personal injury claims. By practicing preventative safety measures, the life you protect may be your own.
