Fall RESTRAINT - NOT "Fall Arrest"
Washington – One out of six U.S. workers killed on the job is a tractor-trailer truck driver, according to a recent blog post from the Department of Labor.
The Aug. 17 post highlights the increased risk of injuries, illnesses and fatalities among tractor-trailer drivers. It notes that truck driver fatalities increased annually from 2009 to 2014 – the most recent years for which data is available. A total of 761 tractor-trailer truck drivers were killed in 2014.
Other highlights from the blog post:
“We hope that this kind of detailed information will help employers improve conditions for tractor-trailer drivers, as well as empower workers with knowledge about the hazards they’re likely to encounter,” the authors wrote.
