Transportation safety: A growing COVID-19 concern


With motor vehicle-related crashes the leading cause of workplace death – and recent U.S. data showing motor vehicle-related death rates increasing despite fewer miles being driven – employers should be especially concerned. The National Safety Council offers roadway safety resources, including the new SAFER playbook on transportation considerations for returning to work. You also can watch a recording of our Transportation Roundtable: Roadway Safety During COVID-19 and Beyond, in which panelists from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Governors Highway Safety Association and AAA discuss COVID-19 roadway trends.
