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 motor vehicle crashes for:

  • Truck drivers
  • Drivers in other high-risk jobs (EMS, law enforcement, oil and gas extraction)
  • Light-vehicle drivers (real estate, sales, health care)

How will you keep workers safe on the road?
