Are UAE truck drivers stressed? ... Research by Continental 

Our CSR-Partner Continental conducted this important study. Driver fatigue and stress are often overlooked and hence Continental initiated this study to shed light on the importance of truck driver safety by introducing the 'human element' into the safety discussion.

57 per cent of truck drivers claim to 'always or sometimes' experience stress during their work and the majority finds the stress of the job carries over into their personal lives. To improve their experience, 39 per cent wish for additional training and 26 per cent for more breaks. 

Continental wants to help educate the public about the personal experiences and stresses experienced by the UAE’s truck drivers, people who fulfill a vital role for the country’s economy. Based on the findings, it is clear that truck drivers would benefit from a greater focus on training and support with content on how to deal with the stresses they face. We encourage all truck operating companies to follow Continental's lead and focus on the importance of this topic.

Check out a great example of the media coverage Continental's press release enjoyed.
