Warning about “time change” and workplace accidents

Michigan lawmaker wants to end time change and make daylight saving time (DST) permanent.

Daylight savings proposed to end?Fox 2 (WJBK) reports that Senator Peter Lucido is continuing his push to make daylight saving time permanent. He says there are more strokes and heart attacks when the clocks move back and forth. Sleep habits become impaired causing an increase in workers’ compensation injuries.

We believe this is a fascinating discussion and worthy of debate in Lansing. Health and wellness of employees can make a big difference in workplace safety. A seemingly trivial event like moving the clock back and forth an hour can have a real impact.

Did you remember to set your clocks forward last week? Have you recovered from the 1-hour shift in time? Has the time change impacted safety in your workplace? Comment below and let us know your opinion.
