Worldwide Occupational Road Safety Review Published

30 April 2007

Interactive Driving Systems recently completed a worldwide review of occupational road safety for the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). In developing the research, we reviewed data sources for occupational crashes in 15 nations. The research identified gaps in jurisdiction, incomplete data, and an 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 barriers to improvement.
