Título Work characteristics associated with injury among light/short-haul transport drivers
Información bibliográfica Nov 2010, Vol.42, No.6, p.2068-2074. 21 ref.
Resumen The objective of this cross-sectional study was to describe the hazard environment facing drivers of light freight vehicles and short-haul transport drivers and to examine the relationships between hazard exposure and injury. A total of 321 drivers of light vehicles working within a 100 km radius of their base across the Australian state of New South Wales were surveyed regarding their experience of occupation-specific hazards and their experience of workplace injury in the past year. Data were collected by means of structured interviews and group discussions, and subjected to logistic regression analyses. Examination of the hazards most strongly associated with injury suggests that efforts should target work organization and vehicle-related hazards, and particularly work practices that engender frequent stress among drivers.
