While OSHA sees fewer overall deaths in the workplace today, the leading cause of worker fatalities continues to be motor vehicle crashes. Texting while driving dramatically increases the risk of motor vehicle crashes and is the leading cause of worker fatalities. Distracted driving crashes killed more than 5,400 people and injured nearly 500,000 in 2009.
OSHA's new distracted driving brochure helps employers understand the importance of preventing texting by their workers while driving. You can download the brochure from the OSHA website. You can also order printed copies of the brochure at no cost through the OSHA Publications Web page or by calling 202-693-1888.
This resource is part of OSHA's Distracted Driving Initiative. The Department of Labor, through OSHA, is partnering with the Department of Transportation to combat distracted driving. More information about the initiative and resources to help employers prevent distracted driving can be found on the Distracted Driving page.
