The constantly expanding amount of information on the internet provides a staggering amount of statistics regarding tractor trailer accidents, both in California and nationwide.
Recently, the National Council on Occupational Safety and Health issued a press release out of San Diego, announcing its report of the “Dirty Dozen” most dangerous employers for 2017. The coalition represents 21 affiliates in 15 states, and its mission is to promote workplace safety. Of the 12 companies included in the report, three have their headquarters in California. One of the dozen included a company responsible for some 10 percent of traffic in the Los Angeles area, according to the report. It was included for various reasons, including the death of one of its drivers during a truck accident.
A related report released recently by the Bureau of Labor statistics found that 745 drivers suffered fatal injuries in the year in which the data was reported, which was reportedly the most of any occupation.
