Abstract
Motor vehicle crashes are consistently the leading cause of work-related fatalities in the U.S. In 2008, 1,215 workers who were driving or riding in a motor vehicle died in work-related crashes on public roadways, accounting for 23 percent of all worker fatalities (U.S. Department of Labor 2010). Reducing the human and economic toll of crashes requires strong partnerships between government, industry, labor and researchers. Current initiatives to prevent distracted driving demonstrate how these diverse interests can work together toward a common safety goal.
