Within this exploratory preliminary study, data is presented regarding the prevalence of specifi c mood states within a sample of Australian truck and train drivers. A total of 49 heavy vehicle truck drivers and 58 train drivers were recruited from the local community. Subjects completed a mood state questionnaire. Numerous mood states (tensionanxiety, depression-dejection, anger-aggression, fatigueinertia, confusion-bewilderment and total mood disturbance score) were found to be signifi cantly higher (p<0.05) in the truck-driving sample than the train driving sample, and higher than the advised normative values.
