||There are more than 20,000 medical salesmen in France. The objective of this cross-sectional epidemiological study was to better understand the risk factors and physical and mental health problems of medical salesmen and to propose practical preventive measures. The study is also of relevance to persons responsible for salespersons in general, including occupational safety and health specialists, in view of the many common aspects that apply to these mobile workers. It was conducted in the form of a self-administered questionnaire returned by 1003 medical salesmen. Interpretation of the questionnaire by occupational physicians focused on the following aspects: hazards during driving; lifestyles and nutrition; stress, anxiety and depression.
