CDC Foundation Launches Motor Vehicle Safety Resource

On-the-job vehicle crashes in 2013 alone cost U.S. employers $25 billion—$671,000 per death and $65,000 per nonfatal injury, according to the foundation, which adds that such crashes affect businesses through lost productivity, medical and workers’ compensation costs, liability, and reputational damage.

With motor vehicle crashes being the leading cause of work-related injury deaths in the United States, the CDC Foundation has launched Business Pulse: Motor Vehicle Safety at Work.

The foundation was established by Congress as an independent, nonprofit organization to connects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with private-sector organizations and individuals to build public health programs. Since 1995, the foundation has provided more than $620 million to support CDC's work, launched 800 programs around the world, and built a network of individuals and organizations committed to supporting CDC and public health.
