Everything About Road Safety

A substitute chip would work, but CCSI would have to tweak its circuit boards. That process has raised CCSI’s costs, bringing the frustrations of the same chip shortage that has idled auto factories around the world to a tiny town where the other main employers are a granary, a couple of bars and a part-time post office. “This particular problem affects all aspects of manufacturing, from little people to big conglomerates,” said company president Russell Caldwell, whose father founded the business in the 1960s to sell lawn mowers. “Literally we have corn fields around us. . . . There’s not a lot here.” Auto companies have been the most visible victims of the chip shortage, with Ford last week saying it expects to produce 1.1 million fewer vehicles this year than it had planned. General Motors and Ford halt production at more factories as global semiconductor shortage worsens But in a testament to how dependent the world has become on the tiny silicon wafers, manufacturers of everything from video game consoles to household appliances are reporting problems. Apple said last week the supply pinch is hurting production of iPads and Mac computers and might cost it as much as $4 billion in sales, while Caterpillar warned of possible trouble ahead. Samsung said its sales of display panels are down because manufacturers who buy them for smartphones can’t get enough chips and have cut production. Even railways are complaining that they have fewer autos to haul around. The shortages threaten to act as a drag on the economy just as the post-pandemic recovery gets underway. “When the chip supply tightens, the whole economy suffers,” says Glenn O’Donnell, a tech analyst at market-research firm Forrester. Semiconductors are the brains behind most modern electronics, from computers and cellphones to smart toasters and washing machines. Cars, too, rely on dozens of semiconductors to operate dashboard displays, air bags and navigation systems. Increasingly, however, semiconductors are enabling high-tech solutions to low-tech problems, such as vacuuming a carpet or cleaning a litter box. Chip-enabled lightbulbs and thermostats can be turned on and off over a WiFi connection. Pet owners can track their pooches with GPS-powered dog tags. Doorbells tell you someone is at the door, even if you are miles (or continents) away. “Everything has chips in it now,” O’Donnell said.

Approximately 1.35 million people die in road crashes each year, when they need it, while simultaneously enabling drivers who might otherwise be unaware to perform routine maintenance as needed. The last few decades have demonstrated that effective and comprehensive road safety strategies can is shifting toward the use of technologies, such as drone-based monitoring. To prevent motor vehicle crashes involving their employees on and off the job, employers should: Apply principles of the Journey to Safety Excellence Engage employees to understand the risks they face while driving, take action to address the risks and implement measures to track progress Offer defensive driving courses and other training specific to the risks faced Offer programs for employees with alcohol or prescription or illegal drug problems Enact a corporate cell phone policy for road markings, emphasizing their width and retro reflective quality.

HSE and hospital apologise to family over circumstances of girl Photo: Collins Courts. The HSE and Sligo University Hospital have apologised in court to the family of a five-year-old girl with cerebral palsy who had sued over the circumstances of her birth. The apology was read to the court as Megan McGoldrick from Sligo secured an interim settlement of €2.5m for the next three years. Megan, who has dyskinetic cerebral palsy and is unable to communicate verbally, is a happy little girl, Mr Justice Kevin Cross was told. In the apology from the Sligo hospital manager, both the HSE and the hospital said they wished to sincerely apologise to the McGoldricks “for the negligent care and management” during Andrea McGoldrick’s labour and the delivery on November 28, 2015. The statement reads: “We acknowledge the catastrophic injuries caused to Megan as a result of the deficits in care, which have had, and will continue to have a devastating and lasting effect on Megan and your family.”  The letter of apology concludes: “We appreciate this apology will not change the outcome for Megan and your family and for this we are deeply sorry.”  Outside court Megan’s father, John McGoldrick, said the interim settlement will allow the family put in place the vital services and accommodation that is required to care for Megan into the future. He said it was regrettable to note in the letter of apology there was no mention of any lessons learned from “ the disastrous outcome of Megan’s birth". He pleaded with those “in positions of influence to review policies and procedures” in the hope it may prevent similar outcomes. Mr McGoldrick, standing beside his wife Andrea, said their daughter Megan is a bright, determined, and fun-loving girl who is adored by her older sister and her extended family. “Megan’s fight and determination are a constant source of strength for us as a family. Our role as parents is to love, protect, and motivate and encourage Megan to reach her potential,” he said.  Megan’s chance to live an independent life was cruelly taken away from her on her birth. He said they were thankful to the surgical paediatric staff who saved Megan’s life on the day of her birth and to all those who have contributed to Megan’s care over the last number of years. Megan McGoldrick, of Ballintogher, Co Sligo, had, through her mother Andrea, sued the HSE over the circumstances of her birth at Sligo University Hospital on November 28, 2015. In an affidavit to the court, Mrs McGoldrick said she had a caesarean section with her first child. She went into labour with Megan in the early hours of November 28, 2015. Syntocinon infusion, which enhances labour, was later advised, which she claimed is a risk factor for rupture in a woman with a prior caesarean section.  A decision for an emergency caesarean section was made, she said, at 5.17pm and Megan was born at 5.35pm. Mrs McGoldrick said at this stage she had suffered a complete uterine rupture. Megan, she said, was born in a very poor condition having suffered hypoxia and she developed hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. There was, it was claimed, a failure to have due regard to Mrs McGoldrick’s medical history and associated risks.
