The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Center for Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS) conducts research and develops strategies to prevent work-related motor vehicle crashes and injuries. Our work emphasizes these industry sectors: Oil and Gas Extraction; Public Safety; Transportation, Warehousing, and Utilities; and Wholesale and Retail Trade. CMVS researchers collaborate with partners in industry, labor, professional and trade associations, government agencies, and academia.
The CMVS promotes motor vehicle safety for these groups:
- Truck drivers.
- Drivers in other high-risk jobs (emergency medical services (EMS) workers & fire fighters, law enforcement officers, oil & gas workers).
- Light-vehicle drivers (passenger cars, SUVs, pickup trucks).
