    • Description:
      "Motor vehicle crashes cause over 40% of work-related deaths in the oil and gas extraction industry. Driver fatigue, which may be a result of insufficient sleep, long distances traveled to well sites, and long work shifts, is a factor in some of these crashes. In addition to the loss of life, the average on-the-job fatal crash is estimated to cost employers $671,000. Legal settlements can be even more costly. Oil and gas employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees. This fact sheet recommends strategies for employers to manage fatigued driving among their workers." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20051182 Suggested citation: NIOSH [2018].
