OSHA, construction group work to reduce aggressive driving

Through its alliance with OSHA, the Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association (CSDA) has released two best practice documents on aggressive driving and road rage.

“Many CSDA contractors travel around the country in work trucks, and sometimes they and other road users do not understand the extra time needed to maneuver such large vehicles required to bring these vehicles safely to a stop,” said Kellie Vazquez, CSDA safety committee chairperson. As a result, she says, drivers can quickly become aggressive.

The association cites AAA data that implicate aggressive driving as a factor in up to 56 percent of fatal crashes. The documents are available on the association website, www.CSDA.org; click on “safety,” then “OSHA alliance.”
