TRB’s Hazardous Materials Cooperative Research Program (HMCRP) Report 7: Role of Human Factors in Preventing Cargo Tank Truck Rollovers analyzes the causes of the major driver factors contributing to cargo tank truck rollovers and offers safety, management, and communication practices that can be used to help potentially minimize or eliminate driver errors in cargo tank truck operations.

The report focuses on three areas of practice–rollover-specific driver training and safety programs, the use of behavior management techniques, and the use of fitness-for-duty management practices–that could have long-lasting benefits for motor carriers of all sizes across the tank truck industry.
