Truck Crashes Kill Many Truckers, and Others

April 07, 2020

USA- writes that truck crashes make the trucking industry one of the most dangerous in the nation for workers. The trucking industry’s workplace fatality rates in 2018 averaged 28 deaths for every 100,000 full-time employees.*

Trucking is different from many other dangerous jobs because it is not just dangerous for the workers, but presents hazards for others as well. Statistics indicate that 80 percent of the people who tragically died in truck crashes over recent years have been individuals who were not in the trucks. 

While trucking remains hazardous, it is important to note that the industry is slowly becoming safer. Since 1980, the rate of fatal crashes declined by about 36 percent. This is even more impressive, given the fact that the number of miles traveled each year has increased three-fold. Reports suggest that truck drivers are less likely to be under the influence of alcohol or to be traveling on a suspended license than are motorists in passenger vehicles.

It is well documented that most accidents can be prevented with a little extra care and safety education.
