Truck driver fatalities in 2014 hit their highest total in six years, according to preliminary data from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Overall, a preliminary total of 4,679 fatal work injuries were recorded in the United States last year, an increase of 2% over the revised count of 4,585 fatal work injuries in 2013.
In 2014, fatal work injuries due to transportation incidents were slightly higher from the year before and accounted for 40% of fatal workplace injuries (see slide 2, above). Within the transportation event category, roadway incidents constituted 57% of the fatal work injury total in 2014.
(BLS noted that roadway incident counts are expected to rise when updated 2014 data is released in the late spring of 2016 because key source documentation detailing specific transportation-related incidents has not yet been received.)
Transportation and material moving occupations accounted for the largest share (28%) of fatal occupational injuries of any occupation group. Fatal work injuries in this group rose 3% to 1,289 in 2014, the highest total since 2008, the report said.
Drivers/sales workers and truck drivers (slide 1) accounted for nearly 2 out of every 3 fatal injuries in this group (835 of the 1,289 fatal injuries in 2014). In this group, drivers/sales workers increased 74% to 54, and heavy and tractor-trailer drivers had their highest total since 2008, with 725 fatalities in 2014.

Box Truck and Straight Truck High Risk Insurance Quotes.
Our company will help the largest truck fleets down to one independent owner operator needing coverage.
To get the most accurate High Risk Straight Truck Insurance rate quotes, your agent or broker will need certain information, such as:
•Which employees will be driving your trucks?
•What kinds of qualifications, CDL license/s, or training do your drivers have?
•Will they be hauling heavy equipment or hazardous materials?
•How many miles will your vehicles travel each year?
•What states will your vehicles be operating in?
The trucking insurance coverage/s you need may include:
•Commercial truck liability insurance: Covers your liability risks in the event that you or one of your employed drivers causes an accident. Your commercial truck liability will include bodily injury liability to cover the costs of injuries and medical expenses for the injured party, and property damage liability to cover the costs of property damage in an accident. Your commercial truck liability insurance will typically also cover the costs of legal defense, whether or not your company is found to be at fault in an accident.
•Optional physical damage coverage: Covers the costs of damage to your vehicle from an accident or other incident. This coverage includes both collision coverage to pay for damage from a crash as well as comprehensive coverage to pay for damage from theft, vandalism and other than collision causes.
•Uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage (IF REQUIRED IN YOUR STATE): Covers the costs of injuries and damages if you or one of your employees are in an accident where another driver is at fault, but that driver does not have enough coverage to pay for your injuries and property damage.
•Motor Truck Cargo coverage: Covers damage or theft of items your truck is hauling.
The American Transportation Research Institute today released the results of the Phase 1 Beta Test of its Younger Driver Assessment Tool. This is the second in a series of technical memoranda from ATRI exploring the potential for an assessment tool to identify the safest drivers among 18-20 year olds, a critical component of expanding interstate CDL eligibility to younger drivers. Results from ATRI’s beta test show promise for the statistically validated assessment to differentiate safer drivers from less safe drivers.
ATRI’s beta test administered a comprehensive assessment battery to current commercial truck drivers. Truck drivers who participated in the assessment represented a broad range of ages (20-60 years old), driving experience and safety performance. Among the measures tested in the assessment were personality traits, reasoning, impulsivity, sensation-seeking, sleep quality, and cognitive control. Participating drivers’ safety performance was evaluated using motor vehicle record and pre-employment screening program data on safety violations and crash involvement.
Among the statistically significant findings, the drivers in the safest group based on their MVR and PSP data had the highest scores on Conscientiousness and Agreeableness, and the lowest scores on Experience-Seeking. Additionally, drivers in the “less safe” group exhibited marginally greater sensitivity to conflict in the Multi-Source Interference Task, indicating difficulties with cognitive control. While ATRI’s beta test only included 16 drivers under the age of 30, the assessment did show sensitivity to age-related variations in performance. The age sensitivity relationship to safety also materialized in older drivers with fewer years of experience, so the assessment tool is attempting to identify younger drivers with the cognitive and mental attributes of mature, experienced drivers.
