Motor vehicle crashes are the most common cause of fatality for the oil and gas extraction worker, accounting for almost one out of every three fatalities.Workers from companies with fewer than 100 employees have the highest rates of motor vehicle fatality in this industry. Driving is both a critical and frequent task for workers in the oil and gas extraction industry. All sizes of trucks, from pick-up trucks to semi-trucks are driven long distances between well sites to deliver equipment, supplies, and personnel. Deaths to workers can be prevented by implementing comprehensive motor vehicle safety programs.
One component of such a program is in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS).Oil and gas companies tell researchers that these systems are helping to reduce the rate of crashes and injuries for their workers. IVMS and Driver Merit System have proven to help improve driver behavior and reduce accidents.
