Safety, Health and Wellness in Transportation - A Discussion of Current Research and Practice
A recent NIOSH study reported higher rates of some health risk factors including obesity and smoking among U.S. long-haul truck drivers compared to the working population suggesting a need for targeted interventions and continued surveillance. Current NIOSH efforts are currently exploring safety and health risks associated with short-haul drivers. This session will discuss the research, implications, and potential solutions for safety, health and well-being of on-road fleet workers. The NIOSH Total Worker Health (TWH)® approach will be introduced, as well as other industry approaches to workplace wellness in the trucking industry.
