SERRANO-FERNANDEZ, María-José; BOADA-GRAU, Joan; ROBERT-SENTIS, Lluís  e  VIGIL-COLET, Andreu. Predictive variables for sleep quality in professional drivers. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.2, pp.393-401.  Epub 21-Jun-2021. ISSN 1695-2294.

Professional drivers often have problems sleeping or resting properly. This may be due to various factors, both personal and specific to their working conditions. In this study, we set out to develop a predictive model for the quality of sleep in professional drivers using the following indicators: Age, Gender, Seat Comfort, Seat Suspension, Adjustable Lumbar Support of the Driver's Seat, Driving Hours, Musculoskeletal Problems, Driver Stress, Irritation, Resistant Personality, Burnout, Safety Behaviors and Impulsivity.


The participants were 369 professional drivers from different transport sectors, obtained through non-probabilistic sampling. The SPSS 25.0 program was used for statistical analysis.


The predictive capacity of certain variables that affect drivers' sleep quality is determined.


Sleep quality can be predicted by means of certain variables, the best predictor of which is Exhaustion (Burnout). This research contributes to the body of knowledge on sleep quality and on improving the health of professional drivers.
