this file in pdf format 77 KB (5 pages)

Road traffic crashes are a leading cause of workplace death, injury, and disability in many countries around the world. Workers, families, businesses, and society all suffer the consequences of workplace crashes. Because rapid motorization and economic development go hand in hand, workers in the developing world are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the risk of road traffic crashes.

The International Conference on Road Safety at Work, organized by the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and co-sponsors, will provide a forum for business, labor, policy makers, and the research community to address this important topic.

NEW!  NIOSH Provides Input for Global Road Safety Resolution

Participants of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration meetingsThe United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution A/62/L.43 on “Improving Global Road Safety” on March 31, 2008. The Sultanate of Oman introduced the resolution, which was sponsored by more than 90 countries and adopted unanimously. The resolution includes encouragement for "organizations in both private and public sectors with vehicle fleets to develop and implement policies and practices that will reduce crash risks for vehicle occupants and other road users." As a participant in the federal Global Road Safety Interagency Working Group, NIOSH provided input that strengthened this portion of the resolution. For the first time, a United Nations resolution includes specific language that notes the importance of fleet operations to worker safety and public safety. This gives corporations, governments, and other stakeholders strong justification to take action to improve road safety for workers around the world. For more information, contact Stephanie Pratt or Jane Hingston.

NEW! Impact of federal compliance reviews of trucking companies in reducing highway truck crashes
Accid Anal & Prev (2008 Jan; 40(1):238-245)

Worldwide Occupational Road Safety (WORS) Review Project
In developing this report, NIOSH contractor Dr. Will Murray reviewed data sources for occupational crashes using key informants in 15 nations.  He found gaps in jurisdiction, incomplete data, and inability to compare or link data within or between nations.  These factors, along with limited information sharing about successful programs to promote occupational road safety, are impediments to development of international initiatives. 

Proceedings of Truck Driver Occupational Safety and Health Conference
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2007-120
In April 2003, an international group of researchers convened in Detroit to discuss the occupational safety and health of commercial motor vehicle drivers. This conference was unusual because it focused on driver well-being, rather than general highway safety and transportation issues.  The meeting was sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and the Trucking Industry Program and the Trucking Industry Benchmarking Program at Wayne State University. The report provides a selective review of the relevant literature, summarizes the conference presentations, incorporates the comments made by many of the participants, and outlines some topics needing further research.

ANSI Standard on motor vehicle fleet safety
NIOSH was actively involved in the development of a new voluntary standard for preventing motor vehicle crashes. The standard (ANSI Z15 Standard: Safe Practices for Motor Vehicle Operations External link: delineates minimum requirements for workplace traffic safety programs, and was designed for use by any organization whose employees drive on the job.

CDC Health Topic: Motor Vehicle-Related Injuries

Motor Vehicle-Related Incidents: The Leading Cause of Occupational Fatalities in the United States

Motor vehicle-related incidents are consistently the leading cause of work-related fatalities in the United States. Of approximately 5,700 fatalities annually reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 35% are associated with motor vehicles. Between 2002-2007, on average:

  • 1371 workers died each year from crashes on public highways
  • 330 workers died each year in crashes that occurred off the highway or on industrial premises.
  • 363 pedestrian workers died each year as a result of being struck by a motor vehicle.

The risk of roadway crashes associated with on-the-job operation of motor vehicles affects millions of U.S. workers. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that in 2007, nearly 3.9 million workers in the U.S. were classified as motor vehicle operators. Over 40% (1.6 million) of these motor vehicle operators were employed as heavy truck (including tractor-trailer) drivers. Other workers who use motor vehicles in performing their jobs are spread across numerous other occupations. These include workers who operate vehicles owned or leased by their employer, and those who drive personal vehicles for work purposes.

NIOSH Truck Driver Anthropometric and Workspace Survey
This survey project will establish an anthropometric and workspace database for U.S. truck drivers. These data are urgently needed, as anthropometric data for truck drivers have not been updated for a quarter century. The database will be used to upgrade and develop standards for designing ergonomically efficient truck cabs. Ergonomic cabs will help enhance safe operation, increase post-crash survivability, and reduce truck drivers’ exposure to non-fatal injuries, such as sprains and strains, falls, and contusions.

Development of Guidelines and Assessment Tools for Truck Ingress/Egress
This project will develop procedures to evaluate anthropometric and biomechanical considerations related to risk of slipping or falling while entering or exiting a truck. The assessment procedures will be developed based on studying truck drivers in truck ingress/egress for use with digital human modeling software to characterize human factors evaluations of truck cabs. The research will yield scores that can be used to rank alternative systems. The design guidelines will be based on application of the new assessment procedure so that they specify system-level as well as component-level requirements. The outcomes of this research will be applied to improving truck design.

Project contact: Matthew Reed
