A message from the twu
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 want to hear from drivers about their health. We are running a large national survey of drivers to understand their work, health, and lifestyle. We also want to speak with employers.
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.
