According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, vehicle-related accidents are the leading cause of work-related deaths in the U.S. Out of all workplace fatalities, 36% involved a motor vehicle. In addition to the tragic loss of life, motor vehicle accidents have an economic impact, costing employers an average of $500,000 per incident. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the total annual economic impact to be around $60 million. To lower those numbers and protect workers, this May, CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently released a strategic plan for research and prevention of workplace related motor vehicle injuries and death. This will be a four year initiative.
