Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Driving Safety
When it comes to commercial trucking, education can play a significant role in the safety and well-being of commercial drivers and the roads they share with the public. Developed with support from the National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence (NSTSCE), researchers across the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) have come together to provide industry professionals – risk managers, safety directors, dispatchers and their insurance agents – the information they need to develop strategies for a safer, more productive workforce. It is hoped that site visitors will be able to apply this information on emerging areas of safety and loss prevention in their business operations.
On the CMV Driving Safety site, you will find six interactive modules. Each of the modules presented has been prepared by a VTTI research scientist who specializes in the trucking industry. These modules include:
- A discussion of safety issues.
- The latest science on the topic.
- Tools to help build practical solutions.
