Crashes Involving Construction Vehicles

The vast majority of construction vehicle crashes take place in work zones, where injury rates occur at a much higher frequency. Of all fatal crashes in work zones, 41% were rear-end collisions, whereas rear-end collisions only account for 16% of fatalities anywhere else. An average of 85% of construction fatalities are occupants of regular passenger vehicles.

OSHA Regulations for Construction Vehicles

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates construction vehicles. In Safety and Health Regulations for Construction, OSHA outlines rules for large trucks and other commercial construction vehicles. These regulations include things like requirements for emergency brakes, head and taillights, and audible warning devices. Backover incidents are particularly a danger in the construction industry, so OSHA has standards particularly for backing. This includes regulations that prevent a driver from operating a vehicle with an obstructed view to the rear, backing up only when sounding warning alarm, and backing up only when an observer signals that it is safe to do so.
