Trucking is one of the most dangerous jobs, and truckers also see many fatalities while working. At the same time, few have health insurance, most can’t schedule mental health care, and mental illness is stigmatized in their culture anyway. Thus, they live with trauma, and regulations compound, rather than mitigate, this situation.

Keywords:   workplace trauma, PTSD, employment morbidity and mortality, mental health, mental healthcare access, regulatory structures, increased risk
