NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety, Strategic Plan for Research and Prevention, 2014-2018

The risk of motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) associated with on-the-job operation of motor vehicles or exposure to road traffic hazards affects millions of workers in the United States. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is the only federal agency whose mission encompasses the prevention of work-related motor vehicle crashes and resulting injuries for all worker populations, work vehicles, and work settings. NIOSH is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, within the Department of Health and Human Services. The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety (CMVS) is the focal point for activities within the Institute that address this pressing occupational safety problem. The primary purpose of this five-year strategic plan is to define the priority areas for CMVS research and prevention initiatives through 2018. In addition, this strategic plan provides performance measures by which the success of CMVS activities will be measured. The plan also articulates the vision, mission, guiding principles, and scope for the CMVS, placing the Center’s work in the context of the work of other U.S. federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and international partners.
