SURVEY OF THE PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH OF AUSTRALIAN PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS
This report describes the results from the Driving Health Online survey characterising the physical and mental health of Australian truck drivers and the factors impacting health and driving outcomes.
The Driving Health study is a partnership between researchers, employers, unions and government to understand and improve the health of transport workers. You can read on to learn about our findings, our partners, and the research program.
We ran a large national survey of drivers to understand their work, health, and lifestyle. We also spoke to drivers and their family members about the factors affecting their work and health.
Driving Health involves three main phases. The first involves analysis of national datasets. The second is a large truck driver survey. The third and final stage will develop programs to improve health.
