Reducir la velocidad: volver a la escuela significa compartir el camino

By | Tips for Employers, Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

¡Hola!

Septiembre trae muchos caminos llenos de autobuses escolares, niños en bicicleta, más peatones, etc. Recuerde darse tiempo extra cuando salga al trabajo mientras hay más acción en el camino.

¡Su seguridad antes y después del trabajo es importante!

Los días escolares traen congestión: los autobuses escolares están recogiendo a sus pasajeros, los niños en bicicleta se apresuran a llegar a la escuela antes de que suene la campana, los padres agobiados están tratando de dejar a sus hijos antes del trabajo. Nunca es más importante para los conductores reducir la velocidad y prestar atención que cuando hay niños presentes, especialmente antes y después de la escuela.

Bus

 Si va a dejar

Las escuelas a menudo tienen procedimientos de entrega muy específicos para el año escolar. Asegúrese de conocerlos por la seguridad de todos los niños. Lo siguiente se aplica a todas las zonas escolares:

  • No se estacione en doble fila; bloquea la visibilidad de otros niños y vehículos
  • No cargue ni descargue a los niños al otro lado de la calle de la escuela
  • Carpool para reducir la cantidad de vehículos en la escuela

 Compartiendo la carretera con peatones jóvenes

Según una investigación del Consejo Nacional de Seguridad, la mayoría de los niños que pierden la vida en incidentes relacionados con el autobús tienen entre 4 y 7 años y caminan. Son atropellados por el autobús o por un automovilista que pasa ilegalmente a un autobús detenido. Algunas precauciones contribuyen en gran medida a mantener seguros a los niños:

  • No bloquee el paso de peatones cuando se detenga en un semáforo en rojo o esté esperando para girar, lo que obligará a los peatones a rodearlo; esto podría ponerlos en el camino del tráfico en movimiento
  • En una zona escolar cuando las luces intermitentes parpadean, deténgase y ceda el paso a los peatones que cruzan el paso de peatones o la intersección.
  • Siempre deténgase ante un oficial de patrulla escolar o un guardia de cruce con una señal de alto
  • Tenga cuidado extra de vigilar a los niños en las zonas escolares, cerca de los patios de recreo y parques, y en todas las áreas residenciales.
  • No toque la bocina ni acelere el motor para asustar a un peatón, incluso si tiene el derecho de paso
  • Nunca rebase un vehículo detenido para peatones
  • Tenga siempre mucho cuidado para evitar golpear a los peatones dondequiera que se encuentren, sin importar quién tenga el derecho de paso.

Compartiendo la carretera con los autobuses escolares

Si conduce detrás de un autobús, permita una mayor distancia de seguimiento que si estuviera conduciendo detrás de un automóvil. Le dará más tiempo para detenerse una vez que las luces amarillas comiencen a parpadear. Es ilegal en los 50 estados pasar un autobús escolar que está parado para subir o bajar niños.

  • Nunca rebase a un autobús por detrás, o desde cualquier dirección si está en una carretera sin dividir, si está detenido para cargar o descargar niños.
  • Si las luces amarillas o rojas parpadean y el brazo de parada está extendido, el tráfico debe detenerse
  • El área de 10 pies alrededor de un autobús escolar es la más peligrosa para los niños; detenerse lo suficientemente atrás para permitirles espacio para entrar y salir del autobús de manera segura
  • Estar alerta; Los niños a menudo son impredecibles y tienden a ignorar los peligros y tomar riesgos.

 Compartiendo la carretera con ciclistas

En la mayoría de las carreteras, los ciclistas tienen los mismos derechos y responsabilidades que los vehículos, pero las bicicletas pueden ser difíciles de ver. Los niños que andan en bicicleta crean problemas especiales para los conductores porque, por lo general, no pueden determinar adecuadamente las condiciones del tráfico. La causa más común de colisión es un conductor que gira a la izquierda frente a un ciclista.

  • Al adelantar a un ciclista, proceda lentamente en la misma dirección y deje 3 pies entre su automóvil y el ciclista
  • Cuando gire a la izquierda y un ciclista se acerque en la dirección opuesta, espere a que pase el ciclista.
  • Si está girando a la derecha y un ciclista se acerca por detrás por la derecha, deje que el ciclista pase primero por la intersección y siempre use las señales de giro.
  • Esté atento a los ciclistas que giran frente a usted sin mirar ni señalar; especialmente los niños tienen una tendencia a hacer esto
  • Esté más atento en las zonas escolares y los vecindarios residenciales
  • Esté atento a las bicicletas que vienen de los caminos de entrada o detrás de los autos estacionados.
  • Revise los espejos laterales antes de abrir su puerta

Al ejercer un poco más de cuidado y precaución, los conductores y los peatones pueden coexistir de manera segura en las zonas escolares.

Slow Down: Back to School Means Sharing the Road

By | Tips for Employers, Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

Espanol

Hello!

September brings many roads filled with school busses, kids on bikes, more pedestrians, etc.  Please remember to give yourself extra time when leaving for work while there is more action on the road.  Your safety before and after work is important!

School days bring congestion: School buses are picking up their passengers, kids on bikes are hurrying to get to school before the bell rings, harried parents are trying to drop their kids off before work. It’s never more important for drivers to slow down and pay attention than when kids are present – especially before and after school.

BusIf You’re Dropping Off

Schools often have very specific drop-off procedures for the school year. Make sure you know them for the safety of all kids. The following applies to all school zones:

  • Don’t double park; it blocks visibility for other children and vehicles
  • Don’t load or unload children across the street from the school
  • Carpool to reduce the number of vehicles at the school

Sharing the Road with Young Pedestrians

According to research by the National Safety Council, most of the children who lose their lives in bus-related incidents are 4 to 7 years old, and they’re walking. They are hit by the bus, or by a motorist illegally passing a stopped bus. A few precautions go a long way toward keeping children safe:

  • Don’t block the crosswalk when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn, forcing pedestrians to go around you; this could put them in the path of moving traffic
  • In a school zone when flashers are blinking, stop and yield to pedestrians crossing the crosswalk or intersection
  • Always stop for a school patrol officer or crossing guard holding up a stop sign
  • Take extra care to look out for children in school zones, near playgrounds and parks, and in all residential areas
  • Don’t honk or rev your engine to scare a pedestrian, even if you have the right of way
  • Never pass a vehicle stopped for pedestrians
  • Always use extreme caution to avoid striking pedestrians wherever they may be, no matter who has the right of way

Sharing the Road with School Buses

If you’re driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing. It is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.

  • Never pass a bus from behind – or from either direction if you’re on an undivided road – if it is stopped to load or unload children
  • If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop
  • The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them space to safely enter and exit the bus
  • Be alert; children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks

Sharing the Road with Bicyclists

On most roads, bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as vehicles, but bikes can be hard to see. Children riding bikes create special problems for drivers because usually they are not able to properly determine traffic conditions. The most common cause of the collision is a driver turning left in front of a bicyclist.

  • When passing a bicyclist, proceed in the same direction slowly, and leave 3 feet between your car and the cyclist
  • When turning left and a bicyclist is approaching in the opposite direction, wait for the rider to pass
  • If you’re turning right and a bicyclist is approaching from behind on the right, let the rider go through the intersection first, and always use your turn signals
  • Watch for bike riders turning in front of you without looking or signaling; children especially have a tendency to do this
  • Be extra vigilant in school zones and residential neighborhoods
  • Watch for bikes coming from driveways or behind parked cars
  • Check side mirrors before opening your door

By exercising a little extra care and caution, drivers and pedestrians can co-exist safely in school zones.

Mantente saludable e hidratado este verano

By | Tips for Employers, Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

Hola!

¿Pueden creer que ya vamos a medio año?  ¡Estamos a punto de tener el mes más caliente del año!

Queremos tomar el tiempo para recordarles que es muy importarte que se mantengan hidratados especialmente durante los meses más calientes.

6 consejos para mantenerse hidratado

¡La mejor definas contra la deshidratación es la prevención!

  1. No espere hasta que tenga sed para tomar agua. Si espera a tener sed para tomar agua, ya esta deshidratado. Tome tragos de agua durante el día para aprevenir tener sed y esta deshidratado. Debe de tomar mas agua durante los tiempos mas calientes y cuando este más activo.
  2. Dele sabor a su agua. Si no le gusta tomar agua natural, puede agregarle sabor de varias maneras. También puede tomar caldo claro, paletas de hielo, o bebidas deportivas. La cafeína, alcohol y sodas lo quitan la sed, pero los deshidratan.
  3. Consuma frutas y verduras que son ricas en agua. Varias frutas y verduras contienen bastante agua además de varios nutrientes saludables. Sandia, fresas, melón, duraznos, y piñas son frutas ricas en agua. Pepinos, verduras verdes, apio, calabacín y tomates son verduras ricas en agua.
  4. Quédese adentro cuando haga demasiado calor. Cuando las temperaturas estén altas manténgase en un ambiente con aire acondicionado. Si no tiene aire acondicionado puede ir a un centro comercial, tiendas, cine o biblioteca. Evite estar afuera durante las horas de 10am a las 2pm cuando los rayos del sol están mas calientes. Planifique actividades afuera temprano en la mañana o en la tarde cuando baje la calor.
  5. Póngase ropa según el clima. Los colores oscuros absorben la calor, debería usar ropa mas clara. Ropa ligera y holgada permite que su piel respire. Use un sombrero o gorra de ala ancha al sol para mantener la cabeza fresca y use abundante protector solar para evitar las quemaduras solares, que pueden aumentar la temperatura de la piel y hacer que sea más difícil mantenerse fresco.
  6. Sea consciente de los signos de deshidratación. Si alguien de su familia está enfermo, preste atención a cuánto pueden beber, especialmente los niños pequeños y los ancianos. Cualquier persona que tenga fiebre, vómitos o diarrea debe beber muchos líquidos. No espere a que aparezcan signos de deshidratación.

Síntomas de deshidratación

Esté atento a cualquiera de estos signos de deshidratación en niños o adultos:

  • Orina más oscura de lo habitual
  • No orinar a pesar de beber agua constantemente
  • Calambres musculares
  • Mal aliento
  • Fatiga
  • Fiebre o escalofríos
  • Deseo de dulces
  • Sequedad de boca / piel
  • Latidos cardíacos acelerados
  • Irritabilidad
  • Confusión
  • Somnolencia
