Driving skills can change. A range of medical problems can affect the ability to drive safely. People with cognitive impairment may be dangerous to themselves or others on the road. A knowledgeable informant who has observed the client’s driving skills can be useful in determining if a client should stop driving.

Suncoast Safety Tips

Listen Up


Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common occupational diseases. Always wear your recommended equipment to prevent hearing loss (canal caps, earplugs or earmuffs), which may vary depending on the noise level and work environment. If you are uncertain, ask. If you have to shout over noise to be heard on or off the job, that noise could be damaging your hearing.
