Vehicle Crashes – Your Job is at Stake

Our workplace bears a heavy economic burden associated with crashes, regardless of whether a worker becomes injured on or off the job. Crashes affect an employer’s bottom line which trickles down to the health and stability of the company…and your job.

    • Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of unintentional workplace deaths in the United States.
    • On-the-job highway crashes can cost employers $24,000 per crash, and $68,000 per injury.
    • In a one-year period, the cost of medical care, wage and productivity losses associated with injuries from motor vehicle crashes exceeded $214 billion.
