Abstract
A total of 5,657 work-related deaths occurred in the United States in 2007. Of these, one fourth (1,141) were highway incidents. In Oklahoma, there were 36 work-related motor vehicle crash fatalities on public roads in 2007 (5% of all traffic crash deaths; 34% of all work-related deaths). Of the 36 fatally injured workers, 75% were drivers, 14% were passengers, and 11% were pedestrians. Fatally injured workers ranged from 18-66 years of age, with a median age of 42 years. Almost all workers were male. Eighty-one percent of fatal crashes involved large trucks, and 69% of fatal injuries were to truck and delivery drivers. Three-fourths of workers were not wearing a seat belt at the time of injury. Almost one-third of workers were not residents of Oklahoma.
