OMVIS Kentucky Occupational Motor Vehicle Injury Surveillance Program
The overall goal of the Kentucky Occupational Motor Vehicle Injury Surveillance (OMVIS) Program is to develop a comprehensive surveillance database to identify and study occupational motor vehicle (OMV) crashes in the state of Kentucky. This includes identifying OMV crashes of vehicle types that are difficult to identify as occupation-related (e.g., delivery vans, ride-hailing services) in crash databases.
Using the OMVIS database, we aim to develop a new occupational health indicator (OHI) that will be used to identify OMV crashes along with high crash corridors and locations for OMV crashes. Program findings will be disseminated through epidemiological reports, publications, presentations, and trainings.
