Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) requests assistance in preventing injuries and deaths associated with motor vehicles. From 1980 to 1992, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of work-related deaths in the U.S. workers. During this period, traffic-related motor vehicle crashes accounted for the deaths of 15,830 workers, or 20% of all fatal workplace injuries. Also during that period, 1997 worker deaths were associated with motor vehicle crashes that were not related to traffic on a public highway. The number of traffic-related deaths was eight times the number not related to traffic. This alert examines traffic-related motor vehicle crashes that resulted in the dealth of a person who was at work when the incident occurred. Events that occurred while traveling to or from work are not included. NIOSH requests your help in bringing this alert to the attention of workers and employers to raise the awareness of all workers who drive as part of their jobs.
