The danger of truck driving

From The Panel, 4:45 pm on 21 August 2018

If you drive a truck for a living you're more likely to die on the job than in any other profession. Alex Collie of the Monash School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine says truck driving "has long working hours, lots of sitting, poor nutrition, social isolation, shift work, time pressure, low levels of job control, a risk of road crashes." We talk to truckie Terene Batten about her experience of being on the road.
