Objectives: To undertake a process-evaluation of a structured health intervention for truckers (SHIFT) implemented in a sample of UK lorry drivers. Methods: A combination of "debrief interviews," focus groups and one-to-one interviews, in addition to observations and reflections of the two lead researchers were used to collect data on the acceptability of SHIFT from a group of 16 lorry drivers and four transport managers. Results: The SHIFT program was considered relevant and acceptable to lorry drivers. It provided them with health information tailored to their specific health needs, long-lasting tools and techniques, which helped to raise their awareness of key health issues and helped to stimulate lifestyle changes during their daily routine. Conclusion: This process-evaluation suggests that the SHIFT program should now be evaluated on a larger scale and tested through fully randomized controlled trials.
