The COMERCIAL VEHICLE SAFETY ALLIANCE HAS ANNOUNCED THAT
COMMERCIAL DRIVERS AT RISK FOR MENTAL ILLNESS
Almost a third of America’s 3.5 million truck drivers will be involved in or witness a serious road accident at some point in their careers. No matter the cause . . . .being involved in an accident can leave lasting mental scars. Being in a wreck or even seeing one can cause enough stress and anxiety to become a diagnosable mental illness such as PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder.
Many drivers will never get treatment for mental disorders, both because men (who make up the majority of the nation’s driver workforce) are less likely to seek treatment than women and also because the nature of the job makes it difficult to get any medical treatment, much less mental health care.
Many fleet operators are setting up wellness programs to address mental health issues as well as smoking, obesity and sleep apnea.
Drivers must make their physical health and mental health their top priority. Their safety and the safety of others depend on it.
DO VEHICLES HAVE TOO MANY “BUILT-IN” DISTRACTIONS?
