Truck Driver Safety

October 2007
NIOSH Docket Number 110

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health requested public comment on the content and conduct of a nationally representative survey of truck drivers’ safety and health. The goal of the survey is to collect information on truck driver health, sleep disorders, fatigue, working conditions, and non-fatal injuries.

In response to needs cited by stakeholders for more detailed data on prevalence of health conditions and risk factors, working conditions, injury causes and outcomes, and health behaviors among truck drivers, a national survey of truck driver safety and health is being planned as part of the NIOSH transportation research program. This project will document occupational safety and health status of truck drivers
