TAUBE, Michelle Engers  e  CARLOTTO, Mary Sandra. Differences of perception of stressors according to the route type on truck drivers work. Aletheia [online]. 2018, vol.51, n.1-2, pp. 52-67. ISSN 1413-0394.

The profession of truck driver is exposed to several occupational stressors. This study aimed to evaluate the existence of differences between short and long run distances truck drivers, regarding stressors perception. The sample was composed by 445 Brazilian truck drivers from different zones of the state of Rio Grande do Sul. As instruments, we used socio-demographic, labor, and occupational stressors questionnaires especially created for this research. The data was analyzed trough student t-tests. The analysis highlighted that long distance drivers, compared to short distance drivers, have higher stressors levels about: roads pavement and rest conditions, services area, food court services, lack of security, working hours, salary, and electronic control systems. The results indicate that the variable long driven distance should be considered for the illness process analysis of this profession category.
