Each day, between 12 to 13 U.S. workers die as a result of a traumatic injury on the job. Investigations conducted through the FACE program allow the identification of factors that contribute to these fatal injuries. This information is used to develop comprehensive recommendations for preventing similar deaths. This web page provides access to NIOSH investigation reports and other safety resources.

CDC Vital Signs - Trucker Safety: Using a Seat Belt Matters

Using a seat belt is the single most effective intervention to prevent truck drivers from being injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash. According to a new CDC Vital Signs report, more than 1 in 3 truck drivers who died in crashes in 2012 were not buckled up, a decision which could have prevented approximately 40% of these deaths.

MMWR Vital Signs: Seat Belt Use Among Long-Haul Truck Drivers — United States, 2010

This study estimates the prevalence of seat belt use and identifies factors associated with nonuse of seat belts among long-haul truck drivers, a group of workers at high risk for fatalities resulting from truck crashes. According to the study, an estimated 86% of long-haul truck drivers reported often using a seat belt, 8% used it sometimes, and 6% never. Of the 6% who never used a seat belt, 15% often drove 10 mph or more over the speed limit, 27% had at least 1 moving violation in the past year, 32% worked for employers without a written safety program, and 37% lived in a state without a primary belt law.
