This ninth report describes the results from the intervention phase of the Driving Health study, implementing the Driving Health Allocator Training Program with direct managers of drivers in the Australian trucking industry. This study aimed to:

1. Examine the feasibility of an online training program aimed at increasing awareness of driver health and wellbeing at the manager level.

2. Identify the degree to which managers feel they have influence on factors impacting driver health.

3. Determine if the awareness training resulted in a change in the perception of managers.

4. Determine if awareness training changed the actions a manager would take to help a struggling driver.
