Safety Is Everyone’s Concern! We live and breath a safety culture. Recognizing the warning signs of anxiety or depression among commercial drivers is crucial for promoting mental well-being and ensuring road safety. Here are some common signs to watch out for (this is the shortlist):

  1. Changes in Behavior: Commercial drivers may exhibit changes in behavior, such as becoming more withdrawn, irritable, or agitated. They may also display signs of restlessness or difficulty concentrating.
  2. Mood Swings: Noticeable fluctuations in mood, including sudden outbursts of anger or tearfulness, can be indicators of underlying mental health issues.
  3. Increased Absenteeism or Tardiness: Frequent absences from work, tardiness, or a decline in job performance may be signs of depression or anxiety affecting a driver’s ability to fulfill their duties effectively.
  4. Changes in Sleep Patterns: Insomnia, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or excessive sleeping during off-duty hours may indicate underlying mental health issues.
  5. Physical Symptoms: Commercial drivers experiencing anxiety or depression may also exhibit physical symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, digestive issues, or unexplained aches and pains.
  6. Difficulty Concentrating: Anxiety or depression can impair concentration and decision-making abilities, potentially leading to difficulties in safely operating commercial vehicles.
  7. Changes in Eating Habits: Significant changes in appetite, such as overeating or loss of appetite, may be indicative of underlying mental health concerns.
  8. Expressing Hopelessness or Helplessness: Verbalizing feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, or thoughts of self-harm or suicide should be taken seriously and addressed immediately.
