The Center’s goal is to make sure that those who work in or near vehicles come home safely at the end of their work day. Learn more about the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety.

In 2014, the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety developed a 5-year strategic planpdf icon to help advance understanding of the risk factors that place workers at risk of work-related motor vehicle crashes, evaluate a range of interventions to reduce these risks, and develop and communicate research-based prevention information to employers, workers, and other stakeholders.

The purpose of this public web meeting and docket was to request public comment on NIOSH CMVS progress and future plans as outlined in the following reference documents: NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Progress Report 2016 and NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Performance Measures.
