According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries in 2015, almost 900 driver/sales workers and truck drivers experienced fatal work injuries, nearly three times as many as the agribusiness industry, which maintains the second-highest amount of fatal work injuries.

Although roadway accidents account for a large number of trucking injuries and deaths, a number of other hazards negatively contribute to trucker safety. Many drivers are injured while completing the following tasks:

  • Getting in and out of the cab
  • Getting in and out of the trailer
  • Loading and unloading
  • Securing and unsecuring the load
