MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY AT WORK

Research Program

NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety

In 2010, NIOSH launched the Center for Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS) to address crashes, the leading cause of work-related deaths in the United States.1 The CMVS conducts research and develops strategies to prevent work-related motor vehicle crashes and injuries.

NIOSH is the only part of the U.S. federal government whose mission includes preventing crashes and resulting injuries for all workers, not just a specific worker group. View our fact sheet to learn more.

Our Strategic Goals

1) Identify risk factors for work-related crashes
2) Apply engineering and technology-based safety interventions
3) Promote evidence-based policies and practices
4) Share NIOSH research with global partners
5) Communicate safety and policy recommendations
