The survey comes from the ‘Trucking Lives’ imitative, which is supported by the RHA among others.

As explained by its authors, the survey will ask some questions about experiences of HGV driving and life outside of work.

The researchers says they want to hear about all things trucking, whether it be the good, the bad or the ugly. The findings of the report will be sent to regional and national governments to improve the work and life conditions of HGV drivers.

Trucking Lives is a three-year research project that began last year. It is funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of their Transforming Working Lives research priority.

“In Trucking Lives, we seek to understand the varied experiences of UK truck drivers – across ages, ethnic identities, gender identities as well as career stages (including retired drivers). We want to better understand the ways that truck drivers balance the demands of life while being truck workers,” reads the initiatives website.

The survey can be accessed and completed here.
