NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Research and Guidance Strategic Plan 2014-2018

February 2014
NIOSH Docket Number 270, CDC-2013-0024

Fatality data show that across all industries, motor vehicle-related incidents are consistently the leading cause of work-related fatalities, and they are the first or second leading cause in every major industry sector. The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety is the focal point for research and prevention activities within the Institute to reduce work-related motor vehicle crashes and resulting injuries.

The purpose of this review is to receive public comments and input on the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Research and Guidance Strategic Plan for the period 2014-2018. NIOSH is seeking comments on: (1) the relevance of the current draft; (2) the adequacy of the plan in addressing research needs for work-related motor vehicle crashes and fatal/non-fatal injuries; (3) the adequacy of proposed performance measures; and (4) additional potential partners the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety could engage with to enhance the relevance and capacity of the Center's program.
