Motor Vehicle Safety at Work
Millions of workers drive or ride in a motor vehicle as part of their jobs. And, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of work-related deaths in the U.S. The type of company or job doesn’t matter — the risk is there.
The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS) provides research-based guidance to prevent work-related motor vehicle crashes, focusing on:
- Truck drivers
- Drivers in other high-risk jobs (EMS, law enforcement, oil and gas extraction)
- Light-vehicle drivers (real estate, sales, health care)
