This report, the sixth in the Driving Health study, presents findings from an online national survey of Australian truck drivers in order to:
1. Characterise the physical and mental health of Australian truck drivers.
2. Identify the work, personal, social, environmental, regulatory and health determinants that influence health outcomes and driving performance.
3. Determine whether there are differences in the determinants of health and performance between long-haul and short-haul drivers, and between employee drivers and owner drivers.
