Abstract The objectives of this study were to identify the occupational safety and heath practices and resources in the road transport sector. The descriptive analysis was based on data from the Survey of Health and Working Conditions among professional truck drivers, which were compared to the findings from other sectors of activity in Spain from the 5th National Survey on Working Conditions. Most companies are small, 77% having fewer than 50 employees; 41% of the drivers reported that there was no safety representative within their company; 25% of the companies had no occupational safety and health plan. Other findings are discussed.
