  • Description:
    The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety conducted a midcourse review of its NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety Strategic Plan for Research and Prevention, 2014-2018. This document outlines midcourse review purpose, methodology, results of internal review and external input, and research topics to consider for the remaining two years of the strategic plan.

    What we do: The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS), with our partners, conducts research and develops strategies to prevent work-related motor vehicle crashes and injuries. Through 5 strategic goals, we're working to: 1) identify risk factors for work-related crashes 2) apply engineering and technology-based safety interventions 3) promote evidence-based policies, standards, and regulations 4) collaborate with global partners and 5) communicate safety and policy recommendations. Why we do it: Millions of workers drive or ride in a motor vehicle as part of their jobs. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of work-related injury deaths in the United States, accounting for 23,865 deaths from 2003-2015. These deaths have an impact on workers, their families, businesses, and communities. In 2013 alone, motor vehicle crashes at work cost U.S. employers $25 billion - $65,000 per nonfatal injury and $671,000 per death. All workers are at risk of crashes, whether they drive light or heavy vehicles, or whether driving is a main or incidental job duty. The goal of the Center for Motor Vehicle Safety is to make sure that those who work in or near vehicles come home safely at the end of their work day. Who we work with: CMVS researchers collaborate with partners in industry, labor, professional and trade associations, government agencies, and academia. What sets us apart: NIOSH is the only part of the U.S. federal government whose mission encompasses prevention of work-related motor vehicle crashes and resulting injuries for all worker populations. Other federal agencies have responsibilities and interest in motor vehicle safety for specific worker groups (e.g., truckers, fire fighters, law enforcement officers). Priority populations: We research and provide guidance to promote motor vehicle safety for truck drivers, other high-risk workers (e.g., emergency medical service (EMS), law enforcement, oil and gas extraction workers), and all who drive for work (e.g., home healthcare workers, sales representatives).
