The Health Risks of Long-Distance Trucking

This is the final report of the first phase of a project which aims to enrich the understanding of factors underlying the health risks of long-distance trucking. The project explicitly departs from previous methodologies in (a) interviewing truck-drivers personally and at length rather than by postal questionnnaire (b) extending the analysis of health risks to the families of truck-drivers. It takes as the target of analysis the lifestyle of truck-driving as opposed to the job.
