DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2023-137
Injuries from dump trucks led to the deaths of 809 construction and extraction workers from 2011 to 2020. Those operating dump trucks or working nearby are at risk of multiple hazards including struck-by, tip-over from loss of vehicle control, crushing, electrical, and falls. This fact sheet gives employers and workers ways to recognize and avoid these hazards and prevent dump truck-related injuries and deaths at construction sites. Employers, contractors, and supervisors should take the lead in using these recommendations to help prevent dump truck-related deaths, injuries, and close calls.
