New resource to help employers reduce risk from mobile equipment and vehicles

Published on: October 29, 2021

In the past 10 years, there were over 550 serious injuries and fatalities due to workers on foot being struck by vehicles or mobile equipment. To prevent struck-by incidents, it’s important to understand the factors that contribute to the risk, and how to apply effective controls to reduce that risk.

Our new information sheet, Reducing the risk of workers being struck by vehicles or mobile equipment, breaks down the risk factors, from work equipment and environment to the type of tasks, and details how employers can manage that risk by identifying, assessing, and controlling those factors.
