Case Study: Drugs and Alcohol in Fatal Work Crashes

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) published a study titled "Fatigue, Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Medical Factors in Fatal-to-the-Driver Heavy Truck Crashes."

According to NTSB’s toxicology reports:

  • 33 percent of drivers who were fatally injured tested positive for alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigue and fatigue-drug interactions were involved in more fatalities than alcohol and other drugs of abuse alone
  • A disproportionately high percentage of drivers who used drugs are single, separated, or divorced

Key Takeaway: Driving while "under the influence" contributed to one-third of fatal injuries in this study. However, drugs and alcohol are not the only factors that can lead to fatal vehicle-related injuries: Fatigue also plays a key role in many accidents. How can your workplace promote safe, sober, and non-drowsy driving? Consider this and your role in workplace safety. By setting a good example yourself, you are contributing to a healthier workplace.
