Motor vehicle crash risk affects workers in all industries and occupations,
whether they drive tractor-trailers, cars, pickup trucks, or emergency
vehicles, and whether driving is a primary or occasional part of the job.
Because of the diversity of these work settings, one size does not fit all when
it comes to either research or communication.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Center for
Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS) is taking up the challenge of communicating to
employers and workers about the risks of driving for work and how to avoid
motor vehicle crashes. They provide information in the sectors:
- Truck drivers
- High-risk workers
- All who drive for work.
Information includes 'Distracted Driving at Work', 'Long-Haul Truck Drivers',
'Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program', 'Law Enforcement
Officer Motor Vehicle Safety, 'Emergency Medical Services Workers', 'Shift Work
and Long Hours', and 'Highway Work Zone Safety
