NIOSH Fact Sheet: Preventing Dump Truck-related Injuries and Deaths

Injuries from dump trucks led to the deaths of 809 construction and extraction workers from 2011 to 2020. Those operating dump trucks or working nearby are at risk of multiple hazards including struck-by, tip-over from loss of vehicle control, crushing, electrical, and falls. This NIOSH fact sheet gives employers and workers ways to recognize and avoid these hazards and prevent dump truck-related injuries and deaths at construction sites (CDC/NIOSH links below).

FYI for worker training sessions. This short CBS New York video clip from February 2023 illustrates a potential electrical hazard with dump trucks (link below). The Secaucus, New Jersey incident shut down traffic on Route 3 in both directions.
