DOT Summit 2020 Recap

Transportation safety and COVID-19 panel discussion

Watch our expert panel discuss the big issues facing commercial transportation and logistics post pandemic

Despite fewer vehicles on the road since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, commercial transportation has remained steady. With a higher concentration of truckers and other delivery drivers on American roadways, these essential workers are facing a number of unique challenges — from longer shifts to behavioral health concerns. As a result of this new environment, there is also growing concern about a rise in work-related injuries among this population.

To explore these issues in depth and consider the impact on and potential solutions within workers’ compensation, myMatrixx assembled an industry-spanning panel of experts for a highly informative session. They covered the many facets of this emerging topic, including:

  • Health of the transportation industry and COVID impact
  • Observations from the safety and claims community
  • Behavioral health concerns for drivers
  • How the effect of COVID on truckers parallels the larger pandemic
  • Sleep and fatigue among drivers
  • Solutions and access to care including best practices and the emergence of telemedicine
  • Commercial transportation injury prevention and the importance of proactive behavioral health care
