Motor Vehicle Safety Management and Policy
1 NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Strategic Plan for Research and Prevention, 2014-2018
This 5-year strategic plan for the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety is being used to advance understanding of the risk factors that place workers at risk of work-related motor vehicle crashes, evaluate a range of interventions to reduce these risks, and develop and communicate research-based prevention information to employers, workers, and other stakeholders. As this plan is implemented, NIOSH will work with partners to respond to emerging issues and provide research-based guidance so that those who work in or near motor vehicles come home safely at the end of their work day.

Analysis of Crash Data
10 Occupational highway transportation deaths among workers aged >/= 55 years - United States, 2003-2010
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report: August 23, 2013 / 62(33);653-657
Highway transportation incidents are the leading cause of occupational fatalities in the United States. This study reported that the fatality rate of occupational highway transportation incidents for workers aged ≥65 years was more than three times the rate for workers aged 18-54.
11 Short Sleep Duration Among Workers - United States, 2010
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report: April 27, 2012 / 61(16):281-285
Insufficient sleep can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences for fatigued workers and others around them. This study found that short sleep is associated with various adverse health effects on workers. It suggests the need to target interventions to increase the proportion of adults who get sufficient sleep to improve safety at work.

12 Research in brief: motor vehicle safety for law enforcement officers - still a priority
Policy Brief: April 2015 / LXXXII(4):22-23
Between 2013 and 2014, the number of officers who died in the line of duty increased by 24 percent. In 2014, 50 officers were killed in firearm incidents, and 49 died due to motor vehicle events. In the last decade, one officer a week, on average, has been killed on U.S. roads (2005-2014 = 61.9 deaths annually). Even though motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of job-related deaths among law enforcement officers, data on motor vehicle injury and crash trends are scant. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) embarked on a comprehensive statewide study of motor vehicle safety among law enforcement officers to better understand these issues. The study was conducted in one state (Iowa); however, the results and recommendations are useful to law enforcement leaders across the United States.
13 Law Enforcement Officer Motor Vehicle Safety: Findings from a Statewide Survey
NIOSH Publication No. 2015-101
This document reports results and recommendations from a survey of law enforcement officers in Iowa. Officers responded to questions about their attitudes and behaviors related to motor vehicle safety on the job, their crash experience, and departmental policies and training.

15 Seat belt use among long-haul truck drivers - United States, 2010
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report: March 6, 2015 / 64(8);217-221.
This study reported that about 14% of long-haul truck drivers (LHTDs) are at increased risk for injury and death because they do not use a seat belt on every trip. Safety programs and other management interventions, engineering changes, and design changes are recommended as strategies to increase seat belt use among LHTDs.
16 U.S. truck driver anthropometric study and multivariate anthropometric models for cab designs
Human Factors: October 2012 / 54(5):849-871
This study presents updated information on body dimensions of a nationally representative sample of the U.S. truck driver population. It reports that both male and female drivers are about 30 pounds heavier than persons of the same age in the general population. This research will help manufacturers build safer truck cabs that are a better fit for today’s drivers.
