The primary aim of this component of the Driving Health project was to identify and explore the factors influencing and promoting health and wellbeing for truck drivers from their perspective and that of their family.
A further aim was to explore possible interventions that could promote better health from the truck driver’s perspective.

The findings identified seven categories of factors that influence professional truck driver health and when they are balanced, can promote wellbeing.
