Trucking Survey Finds Injury Prevention Materials Effective

A survey evaluation of trucking injury prevention materials from the Trucking Injury Reduction Emphasis through Surveillance (TIRES) Project found that 83 percent of respondents have made changes after receiving TIRES prevention materials and 82 percent have requested additional safety topics to be addressed.

TIRES was developed by the Safety and Health Assessment and Research for Prevention (SHARP) Program of the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries and is partially funded by a grant from NIOSH. The goal of TIRES is to reduce the incidence of:

  1. Non-traumatic musculoskeletal disorders.
  2. Slips, trips, and falls.
  3. "Struck by" and "caught in" injuries.

More information about TIRES, including an in-depth report on injuries in trucking titled Preventing Injuries in the Trucking Industry Focus Report, can be found at www.Lni.wa.gov/Safety/Research/Trucking/Default.asp.
