SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) 
is seeking input on the progress and future direction of its Center for 
Motor Vehicle Safety to ensure that the program is (1) addressing goals 
outlined in the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: Strategic Plan 
for Research and Prevention, 2014-2018 http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2014-122/pdfs/2014-122.pdf; (2) meeting stakeholder needs; and (3) 
working effectively toward its overarching purpose of preventing work-
related crashes and injuries.
    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of work-related injury 
deaths in the United States. Millions of workers drive or ride in a 
motor vehicle as part of their jobs. The risk affects workers in all 
industries and occupations, whether they drive heavy or light vehicles 
on the job.
    Between 2003 and 2014, 22,000 workers died in work-related motor 
vehicle crashes. In 2013 alone, motor vehicle crashes at work cost U.S. 
employers $25 billion--$65,000 per nonfatal injury and $671,000 per 
death.
    NIOSH is the only U.S. federal agency whose mission encompasses 
prevention of work-related motor vehicle crashes and resulting injuries 
for all worker populations. Since 2014, the NIOSH Center for Motor 
Vehicle Safety has followed a 5-year strategic plan for research and 
prevention to work toward meeting five strategic goals.
    To help us review midcourse progress, we request your comment on 
the Center's work and goals. NIOSH is especially interested in comments 
that address the following topics:

Research Priorities

    1. What research should NIOSH consider pursuing during the 
remaining period covered by the NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety: 
Strategic Plan for Research and Prevention, 2014-2018?
    2. What research should NIOSH begin planning to initiate beyond 
2018?
    3. Are there additional external research partners NIOSH should 
work with?

Communications and Outreach

    4. What specific resources or tools are most urgently needed to 
move prevention of work-related crashes forward?
    5. What audience(s) for workplace crash-prevention information 
should NIOSH prioritize in planning its communication strategy?
    6. What are your organization's preferred digital communication 
channels for receiving workplace crash-prevention information (e.g., 
email, social media, eNewsletter, Web page)?

Use of NIOSH Products

    7. How have you or your organization used information from the 
NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety? Of particular interest is 
information on changes made in workplace motor vehicle safety programs 
based on research results and/or communication materials and the impact 
of those changes.
