Proposed Project Pilot Project: Work Organization Risks to Short-haul Truck Drivers’ Health & Safety—New—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH),Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Commercial truck drivers face widely acknowledged safety risks on the job and are at an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Long and irregular work hours, lack of breaks, inadequate sleep, and little access to exercise facilities and healthy eating options contribute to drivers’ health and safety problems. Additionally, health complications of obesity (e.g., sleep apnea, type II diabetes) place truckers at even greater risk of roadway crashes. Much of what PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15 Number of responses per respondent Average burden per response (in hours) 1 20/60 we know about work and health is based on knowledge gleaned from research on long-haul commercial drivers. Local short haul drivers are those who generally return home each night after work, and who travel no more than 150 miles from the employer’s terminal each day (whereas long-haul drivers are away from home for long periods of time and drive much greater distances daily). This research addresses a gap in knowledge and responds to stakeholders’ requests for research that examines work organization in local short-haul commercial driving. The purpose of this data collection is to learn more about the local short-haul trucking industry and how the complex interplay between job design and individual health behaviors affects the safety, health, and well-being of commercial drivers. NIOSH is requesting a 12-month OMB approval. A survey will be used to collect crosssectional data from 300 local short-haul commercial drivers. Drivers will answer questions about work design, organizational policies, occupational stressors, physical health, safety, and mental well-being. The data collected will be used to characterize work organization in local short-haul commercial driving and analyzed to examine the association between work design and driver physical health, mental health, well-being, and safety. Stakeholders in trucking associations have agreed to promote participation in the study amongst their member organizations. A sample of 300 drivers will be recruited from across several commercial driving companies over a six-month time period. This is a crosssectional survey. Drivers will complete the survey only one time. It is estimated that the survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous, and no personally identifiable information will be collected. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated burden is 174 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1.

Proposed Project

    Pilot Project: Work Organization Risks to Short-haul Truck Drivers' 
Health & Safety--New--National Institute for Occupational Safety and 
Health (NIOSH),Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Commercial truck drivers face widely acknowledged safety risks on 
the job and are at an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, 
hypertension, and obesity. Long and irregular work hours, lack of 
breaks, inadequate sleep, and little access to exercise facilities and 
healthy eating options contribute to drivers' health and safety 
problems. Additionally, health complications of obesity (e.g., sleep 
apnea, type II diabetes) place truckers at even greater risk of roadway 
crashes. Much of what we know about work and health is based on 
knowledge gleaned from research on long-haul commercial drivers. Local 
short haul drivers are those who generally return home each night after 
work, and who travel no more than 150 miles from the employer's 
terminal each day (whereas long-haul drivers are away from home for 
long periods of time and drive much greater distances daily). This 
research addresses a gap in knowledge and responds to stakeholders' 
requests for research that examines work organization in local short-
haul commercial driving. The purpose of this data collection is to 
learn more about the local short-haul trucking industry and how the 
complex interplay between job design and individual health behaviors 
affects the safety, health, and well-being of commercial drivers. NIOSH 
is requesting a 12-month OMB approval.
    A survey will be used to collect cross-sectional data from 300 
local short-haul commercial drivers. Drivers will answer questions 
about work design, organizational policies, occupational stressors, 
physical health, safety, and mental well-being. The data collected will 
be used to characterize work organization in local short-haul 
commercial driving and analyzed to examine the association between work 
design and driver physical health, mental health, well-being, and 
safety.
