Abstract

Public drivers in Chiang Mai who work by transporting passengers around Chiang Mai city without certain route, working hours and incomes. They are one of the informal worker groups who are at risk of exposure to various health hazards while working on the road. Occupational health hazards, including physical hazards, chemical hazards, ergonomic hazards, biological hazards, psychological hazards, and accidents, may harm their health. However, as informal workers, they appear to under-receive health surveillance and health care. Therefore, making guidelines for controlling, preventing, and providing knowledge to public drivers in Chiang Mai should be done.
